Manganous chloride is also known as Manganese sulfate and is commonly used in industries such as agriculture, animal feed, food processing, water treatment, and metal production. It is used to supplement the dietary needs of animals, to reduce water hardness, and as a cleanser for metals.
When rubber is exposed to Manganese sulfate, it can lead to degradation over time. This is due to the chemical's ability to break down rubber's molecular structure. It can also cause swelling, cracking, and discoloration. Furthermore, it can reduce the flexibility and elasticity of rubber, leading to premature failure.
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.
