Calcium phenolsulfonate, also known as Calcium phenolate sulfonate, is primarily used as a lubricant, corrosion inhibitor, and emulsifier in various industries such as oil refining and petrochemicals.
When rubber is exposed to calcium phenolsulfonate, the primary failure mode is that of swelling and softening. The phenolsulfonate molecules have a tendency to absorb into rubber, causing it to swell and lose its elasticity and strength. Additionally, the lubricating properties of calcium phenolsulfonate can cause rubber components to slip and move against each other, leading to further wear and tear.
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.
