Glyceryl phosphate, also known as glycerophosphoric acid, is a phosphoric acid ester of glycerol. It is used in the production of polymers, detergents, and as a food additive. Glyceryl phosphate is also used in the manufacture of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and as an emulsifying agent.
When rubber materials are exposed to glyceryl phosphate, the rubber may become brittle and crack. Over time, the rubber may also become discolored, and may start to decompose, leading to a decrease in its physical properties. Additionally, if the rubber is exposed to high temperatures or to an acid or alkali, it may be degraded or corrode, resulting in cracks and holes in the rubber material.
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.
