This makes Viton® far superior to Nitrile in these regards.

Which is better Viton or EPDM?

Temperature – Viton® temperature resistance ranges from -20°C to 210°C, while EPDM temperature resistance ranges from -45°C to 145° This means that both are excellent for extreme temperatures, but EPDM has a slight edge in colder temperatures, while Viton® is better for heat resistance at higher temperatures.

What is Oring made of?
