Ammonium bromide, also known as ammonium muriate, is an inorganic salt used in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, electronics, and water treatment. It is also used in photography and etching. Common uses for ammonium bromide include fire retardants, corrosion inhibitors, and biocides.
When rubber is exposed to ammonium bromide, it can experience a variety of types of failure. Common types of failure include swelling, discoloration, cracking, and embrittlement. Swelling occurs when the rubber absorbs the ammonium bromide, which causes it to expand and become soft. Discoloration can occur if the rubber is exposed to the chemical for an extended period of time. Cracking can occur due to the chemical’s corrosive properties, and embrittlement can occur if the rubber is exposed to the chemical for too long.
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.
