ASPARTIC ACID Resistant O-Rings and Seals

Aspartic acid, also known as L-aspartic acid, is a naturally occurring amino acid which is used in the production of proteins and enzymes. It is commonly used as a dietary supplement and in food and beverage products.

When rubber is exposed to aspartic acid, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and fragile, leading to cracking and eventual failure. Additionally, the rubber can become sticky and gummy, leading to a loss of strength and elasticity. In order to minimize these types of failures, it is important to select a rubber material that is resistant to aspartic acid and to also regularly inspect the rubber components for signs of damage.


Fluorosilicone (FVMQ, FSIL)

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.
