Manganese Gluconate is an organic compound composed of manganese and gluconic acid and is also known as manganese gluconate complex and manganese gluconate hydrate. Commonly used in the food and beverage industry, it is used as a nutrient supplement and flavoring agent.
When rubber is exposed to Manganese Gluconate, it can cause a number of types of failures. The compound is highly corrosive and can cause severe degradation in the rubber material, leading to cracking, brittleness, and loss of elasticity. Additionally, the compound can cause discoloration due to the staining of the rubber, and can reduce the overall tensile strength of the rubber material. In addition, exposure to the compound can cause a breakdown of the rubber material due to its acidity, leading to the formation of cracks and breaks.
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.
