Ammonium Sulfate (AMS) is an inorganic salt compound composed of ammonium and sulfur. It is commonly used as a fertilizer, soil conditioner, and as an industrial chemical. It is also used in the production of rubber and plastic products.
When rubber is exposed to AMS, it can cause cracking, discoloration, and brittleness. Additionally, the rubber may corrode over time, resulting in decreased strength and flexibility. The rubber can also become less elastic and more brittle, leading to further degradation of the material.
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.
