Amyl Propionate is also known as Propanoic acid, 2-methyl-, 2-methylbutyl ester and is a fragrant chemical compound that is used in the production of cosmetics, perfumes, and food additives. When rubber material is exposed to Amyl Propionate, it can cause swelling, softening, and loss of mechanical properties, leading to cracking, loss of elasticity, and compromised strength. The chemical can also cause discoloration and embrittlement of the rubber material, leading to structural failures or premature wear.
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.
