Ferrous tartrate, also known as iron tartrate, is a chemical compound which is commonly used as a food preservative. In industrial applications, ferrous tartrate is used to create iron salts in the production of inks, adhesives, and paints. Common types of rubber failure when exposed to ferrous tartrate include discoloration, swelling, cracking, and hardening. Additionally, ferrous tartrate can cause rubber to become brittle over time, leading to potential breakage.
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.
