Viton™ FWRD APA Fluoroelastomers

Ensuring Continued Supply in the Face of an Evolving Regulatory Landscape

Chemours Advanced Performance Materials is committed to providing our customers with products that not only perform in meeting your needs, but also ensuring continued supply in the face of an evolving regulatory landscape. To meet your needs, we have innovated our manufacturing process for producing Viton™ FWRD APA fluoroelastomers, by formulating without the use of a fluorinated surfactant and without sacrificing performance. This industry-leading process innovation builds upon our legacy of product innovation and industry leadership.

Viton™ FWRD APA fluoroelastomers are used in seals, gaskets, and o-rings which are critical applications in:

  • Automotive
  • Semiconductor
  • Industrial Manufacturing
  • Oil and Gas

Internal testing, as well as customer testing, have confirmed Viton™ FWRD APA fluoroelastomers made using our new process at a commercial scale production plant have comparable performance to the current grades.

Full-scale commercial launch and transition to the new process is planned for 2024.
