Lead Arsenate, also known as Lead Arsenite, is a commonly used chemical in the rubber, plastic, and electronic industries. It is used as an additive in rubber and plastic to increase their water resistance and as an antifreeze in electronic components.
Exposure of rubber to Lead Arsenate can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack and tear over time. This is due to the lead arsenate reacting with the rubber and causing it to break down. Additionally, the rubber may become discolored and the surface may become rough as a result of the reaction. The rubber may also become more susceptible to oxidation if exposed to lead arsenate for a prolonged period of time. Lead arsenate is also known to be corrosive to certain rubber materials, and if left in contact with rubber for too long, it can cause the rubber to degrade and become brittle.
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.
