Chemours, home to the Teflon™ brand, is celebrating 60 years of its renowned fluoroelastomer product this year.
In 1957, the first fluoroelastomer product, called Viton
™, was launched to help reduce the failure of seals and gaskets being used in a new generation of US Air Force jets. The product, which combines the flexibility of elastomers with the chemical and thermal resistance of fluorochemistry, has become a market leader as a high performance solution.
60 years on and the Viton
™ brand name continues with Chemours now a Fortune 500 company with 7,000+ employees.
In 2016, Chemours launched a Viton
™ Licensee Program to official recognise and acknowledge suppliers who are actively promoting products and material made with genuine Viton
™. MacLellan Rubber is proud to be an Authorised Distributor and be able to give customers reassurance of quality compliance when buying products made with Viton
