Dupont's trade name for fluoroelastomers made from tetrafluoroethylene, perfluorovinylmethyl ether, and a small percentage of crosslinkable monomer. These elastomers combine the rubbery properties of  Viton with the thermal stability, chemical resistance, and electrical characteristics of tetrafluoroethylene resin.
