Cerium sulfate, also known as cerous sulfate or ceric sulfate, is an inorganic compound used in a variety of industries, including water treatment, glass manufacturing, and textile printing. Common uses include fabric bleaching, dyeing, and finishing, water purification, and other chemical reactions.
When rubber is exposed to cerium sulfate, it can cause a number of common failures. These include cracking, discoloration, degradation, hardening, and loss of elasticity. Cerium sulfate can also react with the rubber, leading to a buildup of residue on the surface of the material. This can cause the rubber to become more brittle, leading to further cracking and failure.
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.
