Amyl Nitrite is also known as isoamyl nitrite, and is commonly used as a medication to treat angina, as well as being used in the production of certain fuels and solvents. In terms of rubber, Amyl Nitrate can cause degradation, swelling and cracking of the rubber material as it acts as a plasticizer. The rubber material can become brittle and will lose flexibility, strength and tensile properties. Additionally, the breakdown of the rubber material can be accelerated when exposed to heat or oxygen.
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.
