Acetone Cyanohydrin, also known as Acetone Hydrocyanide, is a colorless, flammable liquid with a sweet, pungent odor. It is a common intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and other industrial chemicals.
When rubber is exposed to Acetone Cyanohydrin, it can cause softening and swelling of the material. This can lead to an increase in permeability, leading to potential failure. Additionally, the rubber may become brittle and crack or tear if exposed to the chemical for extended periods of time.
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.
