MonoIsopropylAmine, also known as MIPA, is a colorless liquid compound with a strong ammonia-like odor. It is used in a variety of industrial and commercial products such as agricultural chemicals, surfactants, and cleaning agents.
When rubber is exposed to MIPA, the rubber can become brittle and crack due to a loss of flexibility. The chemical can also degrade the rubber material, making it prone to tearing and abrasion. Additionally, swelling of the rubber can occur, leading to a decrease in strength and durability. Factors such as temperature, concentration, and duration of exposure can all affect the rate of degradation of the rubber material.
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.
