Cyanogen chloride, also known as CNCl, is a toxic gas used in the production of dyes, pharmaceuticals, and chemical weapons. It is also used in chemical warfare training, as a fumigant, and in chemical synthesis.
When exposed to cyanogen chloride, rubber materials can suffer damage to the molecular structure of the polymer, leading to a decrease in the flexibility and tensile strength of the rubber. The gas can also cause the rubber to become brittle, resulting in cracking and failure of the material. Additionally, the gas may cause discoloration and swelling of the rubber, further reducing its physical properties and increasing its susceptibility to tearing and abrasion.
Markez ® high performance perfluoroelastomer O-Rings (FFKM) offer unmatched value for demanding sealing applications. Produced from nearly identical ingredients as higher priced brands, Markez ® compounds are used for high temperature o-rings and high pressure o-rings and chemical resistant o-rings that deliver similar performance to major FFKM brands, with temperature resistance up to 625oF, at a significantly lower cost. Our proprietary processing allow us to supply seals under an inch in size more efficiently. Introduced exclusively to existing customers over 15 years ago, we now have the experience and capacity to offer Markez ® high temperature o-rings and high pressure o-rings to the world.
