Methylamine is also known as anhydrous ammonia or monomethylamine. It is most commonly used as a commercial-grade fertilizer in the agricultural industry and as a cleaning agent in the chemical and electronics industries.
When rubber is exposed to methylamine, it can cause significant degradation of the material due to the chemical's corrosive properties. The rubber can become brittle and discolored, and may even crack and break down completely. Additionally, the chemical can cause swelling of the rubber, leading to a decrease in elasticity and an increase in brittleness.
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.
