ATLANTIC DOMINION F, also known as Decabromodiphenyl Ether, is a brominated flame retardant commonly used in the production of plastics and rubber. It is used in a wide range of industries such as electronics, furniture, bedding, automotive, and textiles.
When exposed to Decabromodiphenyl Ether, rubber seals and gaskets may suffer from a variety of failure modes. These can include a decrease in the rubber's elasticity, discoloration, cracking, and embrittlement. Decabromodiphenyl Ether can also act as a plasticizer, causing the rubber to become softer and more prone to failure. To protect against these types of failure, rubber seals should be made from materials that are resistant to Decabromodiphenyl Ether, such as fluorocarbon, nitrile, or polyurethane.
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.
