Aluminum Phosphate, also known as Aluminum Phosphoricum, is commonly used in the production of detergents, soaps, and other cleaning products. It is also used in the production of fertilizers, water treatment, and other industrial chemicals.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to Aluminum Phosphate include corrosion, abrasion, swelling, and discoloration. Corrosion can cause the rubber to weaken and crack, compromising the seal. Abrasion can occur when the rubber comes into contact with sharp edges or particles, which can cause the rubber to wear away. Swelling can occur when the rubber is exposed to higher concentrations of the chemical, which can cause the rubber to expand and become brittle. Discoloration can occur as the rubber is exposed to the chemical, changing the color of the rubber and making it less visually appealing.
