A flexible tubing of 100-percent pure Viton® rubber, called VlTUBE®, features chemical- and heat-resistance properties and is often specified for appliance applications. VlTUBE reportedly withstands a variety of petroleum-based fluids and hydrocarbons. Oils, fuels, lubricants, and mineral acids - which can act as solvents on other rubbers, causing disintegration and tubing failure - will not affect VITUBE, according to the supplier. It is also said to resist many aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, such as benzene, toluene, xylene, and carbon tetrachloride. The tubing is able to handle these fluids at high temperatures, reportedly something other rubbers cannot do. The product's general temperature range is -30°F to 400°F (-34°C to 204°C), although it has withstood continuous service temperatures of 600°F (315°C) for 48 hr and 500°F (260°C) for 1,000 hr. It is also said to be weather resistant. NewAge‚ Industries, Inc.
