Acetic acid amide, or Acetanilide, is a chemical compound commonly used in the dye, rubber, and pharmaceutical industries. Commonly known as aniline, it is used as an intermediate in the production of dyes, pharmaceuticals and pigments.
When rubber is exposed to Acetanilide, it can cause swelling, hardening, brittleness, cracking and discoloration of the rubber. Long-term exposure can lead to further deterioration of the rubber, such as loss of tensile strength and the eventual loss of elasticity. In extreme cases, the rubber can be degraded to the point of becoming brittle and cracking.
Fluorosilicone o-rings are a hybrid of silicone and FKM resulting in great jet fuel resistance with high and low temperature performance. Also widely used in semiconductor Ashing equipment with strong resistance to oxygen plasma, FVMQ fluorosilicone o-rings also feature excellent flexibility, compression resistance, aging and sunlight resistance, and overall wide range of basic chemical resistance.
