Common names for Methyl Cyclohexanone include Methyl Cyclohexanol and 2-Methylcyclohexanone. This chemical is often used as a solvent in the paint and coating industries, as a plasticizer for polymers, and as a reagent for organic synthesis.
When rubber is exposed to Methyl Cyclohexanone, the rubber can become brittle and cracked due to the chemical reaction caused by the presence of the chemical. Additionally, it can also cause the rubber to swell and become less flexible, leading to failures such as cracking, tearing, and bursting. The rubber can also become discolored and porous due to the oxidation of the rubber.
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.
