Allylidene Diacetate is a versatile chemical commonly known as Acrolein and Acrylic Aldehyde. It is an important intermediate used in the production of plastics, textile dyes and pharmaceuticals. It is also used in the production of flavors and fragrances, and can be found in the food, beverages and cosmetics industries.
Common failures when rubber is exposed to Allylidene Diacetate include swelling, brittleness, cracking and discoloration due to oxidation. The presence of water and oxygen can accelerate the degradation of rubber materials when exposed to Allylidene Diacetate. It can also cause accelerated aging, due to the breakdown of rubber polymers, leading to premature failure.
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.
