Ammonium Acetate, also known as Acetic Acid Ammonium Salt, is a white crystalline solid with a pungent odor. It is used in the production of fertilizers, food additives, and in the manufacture of dyes, explosives, and other chemicals. It is also used in the pharmaceutical industry as an antiseptic and astringent.
Exposure to ammonium acetate can cause rubber to become brittle, swell, and weaken. High concentrations of ammonium acetate can cause the rubber to become discolored and corroded. Additionally, ammonium acetate can cause rubber to become more susceptible to ozone cracking and can even cause rubber to become brittle and crack without ozone. In extreme cases, ammonium acetate can cause rubber to become permanently deformed.
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.
