Methylamyl acetate, also known as isoamyl acetate or amyl isovalerate, is a colorless, fruity-smelling liquid that is commonly used as a solvent or flavoring agent in a variety of industries. It is found in many products such as perfumes, cosmetics, and cleaning products.
When rubber is exposed to methylamyl acetate, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and cracked due to the chemical's solvent properties. The rubber may also become discolored and may swell, leading to a decrease in elasticity. Additionally, the chemical can cause the rubber to become sticky and tacky, making it difficult to handle.
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.
