Manganese Chloride, also known as Manganese Dichloride or Manganese (II) Chloride, is typically used as a fertilizer. It is also used in the production of ceramics, in the production of batteries, and in the manufacture of rubber and plastic products.
When rubber is exposed to Manganese Chloride, it can suffer from a number of common failures. These include discoloration, cracking, hardening, and swellings. In addition, the chemical can cause a loss of elasticity, surface defects, 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.
