Manganese Acetate, also known as Manganese Diacetate, is a common chemical used in various industries. It is used in the production of paints and coatings as a curing agent, as well as in the production of inks, adhesives and sealants. It is also used as a food preservative and in the manufacture of plastics, textiles and rubber.
When rubber is exposed to Manganese Acetate, it can cause a number of common failures. These include cracking, discoloration, loss of elasticity and surface defects. In addition, the chemical can cause swelling and softening of the rubber, which can lead to deformation and a reduction in the material's tensile strength.
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.
