Lithium Nitrite is also known as nitrilith, and is commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry as a preservative, in the production of glass, and as a reagent in organic synthesis. Common failures when rubber is exposed to Lithium Nitrite include cracking, softening, discoloration and disintegration of the rubber material. This is due to the strong oxidizing properties of the chemical, which can cause corrosion of the rubber.
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.
