Chloroacetone, also known as CHLOROAMINO BENZOIC ACID, is a chemical used in a variety of industries, including the production of pesticides and other agrochemicals. It is also used in the production of pharmaceuticals, plasticizers, and in the manufacture of rubber products.
Common types of rubber failure when exposed to chloroacetone include the breakdown of polymers, swelling, and hardening. This can lead to brittleness, loss of elasticity, and a decrease in overall performance of the rubber material. The breakdown of polymers may also result in the release of toxic substances, which can be dangerous to people and the environment. In addition, exposure to chloroacetone can increase the rate of oxidation of rubber, leading to a decrease in the material's strength and durability.
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.
