BUTYL LACTATE Resistant O-Rings and Seals

Butyl glycolate, also known as butyl lactate, is widely used as a solvent in the paint, coatings, and adhesives industries. It is also used in the production of perfumes, inks, and pharmaceuticals.

The most common type of failure when rubber is exposed to butyl glycolate is swelling and softening of the material. As the chemical is absorbed by the rubber, it expands and causes the material to become more pliable. This can lead to cracking and tearing of the rubber, as well as a decrease in durability. In addition, the chemical can react with certain types of rubber, causing them to become brittle and making them more prone to leakage.


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.
