Manganese Hypophosphite is an inorganic compound composed of manganese and hypophosphorous acid and is also known as manganese(II) hypophosphite. Commonly used in the agriculture, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, it is used as a fertilizer and in the production of various chemicals.
When rubber is exposed to Manganese Hypophosphite, it can cause a number of types of failures. The compound can cause severe degradation in the rubber material, leading to cracking, brittleness, and a decrease in elasticity. Furthermore, exposure to the compound can cause discoloration due to the staining of the rubber, and can reduce the overall tensile strength of the rubber material. Additionally, 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.
