Ammonium Arsinate, also known as Arsenic Acid Ammonium Salt, is an inorganic compound that is a white, crystalline solid with a pungent odor. It is used as a herbicide, pesticide, and in the production of glass and ceramics.
Exposure to ammonium arsenate can cause rubber to become brittle and swell, leading to cracking and failure. In addition, ammonium arsenate can accelerate the oxidation of rubber, leading to hardening and brittleness. It can also cause pigment fading and discoloration, as well as corroding rubber. In extreme cases, it 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.
