Manganese Carbonate, also known as Manganese Carbonate Hydroxide, is a mineral that is commonly used in the production of ceramics and glass, as well as in the manufacture of rubber and plastics. It is also used in the production of fertilizers, as well as in dyes and pigments.
When rubber is exposed to Manganese Carbonate, it can suffer from 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.
