AMMONIUM BICARBONATE Resistant O-Rings and Seals

Ammonium bicarbonate, also known as ammonium hydrogen carbonate or baker's ammonia, is a white, crystalline, slightly alkaline powder used as a leavening agent in baking. It is commonly used in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries.

When rubber is exposed to ammonium bicarbonate, the rubber may experience cracking and premature degradation due to the ammonia component, leading to cracks and tears in the rubber material. The alkalinity of the ammonium bicarbonate can also lead to softening of the rubber, making it more prone to tearing and stretching. Additionally, the bicarbonate component can cause the rubber to become brittle, further leading to cracking and tearing.


Fluorosilicone (FVMQ, FSIL)

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.
