Barium peroxide, also known as peroxide of barium, is a white powder that can be used as a bleaching agent or catalyst in various industrial applications. It is also used in the production of hydrogen peroxide and in the electroplating industry for surface treatment.
When rubber materials are exposed to barium peroxide, there are several common types of failures that may occur. These include discoloration, cracking, hardening, accelerated aging, and surface erosion. Additionally, the chemical can cause chemical swelling of the rubber material, which can lead to a decrease in mechanical and physical properties.
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.
