Hydrazine is a chemical compound with a wide variety of uses. It is also known as Diaminohydrazine, Diamine, Hydrazine hydrate, and Nitrogen hydride. It is commonly used as a rocket fuel, a raw material for fertilizer, a pharmaceutical intermediate, and a corrosion inhibitor.
When exposed to hydrazine, rubber materials can suffer from both softening and hardening, depending on the type of rubber. Common types of rubber failure include swelling, discoloration, cracking, deformation, and loss of elasticity. Additionally, some rubber materials may develop brittle spots or become brittle in general.
EPDM o-rings, or ethylene propylene o-rings, are a family of synthetic elastomers with lower cost steam and chemical resistance, particularly for applications involving solvents, acids and other mild chemicals. Marco Rubber has the world’s largest inventory network of EPDM o-rings and made on demand custom manufacturing often without tooling fees, so the EPDM o-rings you need are always available. Whether it’s for water systems, braking systems, medical, pharmaceutical, food or dairy use, you can count on Marco Rubber to deliver your o-rings fast and efficiently.
