Ammonium thiocyanate is also known as ammonium rhodanide and is commonly used in agriculture, as an intermediate in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, as well as an oxidizing agent in organic synthesis.
When rubber is exposed to ammonium thiocyanate, it can cause swelling, cracking, and embrittlement of the rubber due to its high acidity. The rubber material can become brittle and lose its flexibility, leading to eventual failure of the seal. It can also corrode metal components, reducing the lifespan of the seal.
Viton ® o-rings from Marco Rubber offer excellent compatibility with a range of chemicals, oils and resist high temperatures up to 400F. Viton ® is also known as FKM made of fluoroelastomer one of the most versatile and widely used sealing materials.
