Cerous Chloride, also known as Ceric Chloride, is a chemical compound used in water treatment, glass manufacturing, and other chemical reactions. Common uses include treating industrial wastewater, removing heavy metals from water, and as a catalyst in chemical reactions.
When rubber is exposed to Cerous Chloride, it can cause a number of common failures. These include discoloration, cracking, hardening, swelling, and loss of elasticity. The chemical 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 weak and 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.
