Calcium Gluconate is also known as gluconic acid calcium salt and calcium d-gluconate, and is commonly used in the food, pharmaceutical, and medical industries. It can be used as an additive in food products, to treat iron deficiency anemia, and as a supplement for calcium intake. When rubber is exposed to calcium gluconate, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack. The combination of calcium gluconate and rubber can cause the rubber to become more susceptible to extreme temperatures and wear and tear, leading to failure over time.
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.
