When rubber is exposed to Aminomethane, it can cause a variety of types of failure, including swelling, softening, and loss of strength. Additionally, Aminomethane can cause rubber to become brittle and crack, resulting in leaks or complete failure. The chemical can also cause discoloration of rubber surfaces, as well as fading and cracking of any printed or painted surfaces. Additionally, Aminomethane can cause rubber to become sticky and tacky, resulting in the accumulation of dirt and debris.
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.
