Chlorobenzene Trifluoride, also known as CF3, is an organic compound primarily used in the production of rubber and plastic products. It is also used as a solvent, a fuel additive, and a precursor for other chemicals.
When rubber is exposed to chlorobenzene trifluoride, it can cause the material to swell and soften, leading to an increase in permeability to water, and a decrease in tensile strength and elasticity. Additionally, prolonged exposure to the chemical can cause discoloration and fading of the rubber due to the chlorine compound. High temperatures can cause the rubber to become brittle, leading to cracking and breaking down.
Viton ® o-rings from Marco Rubber offer excellent compatibility with a range of chemicals, oils and resist high temperatures up to 400F. Viton ® is also known as FKM made of fluoroelastomer one of the most versatile and widely used sealing materials.
