Nickel Ammonium Sulfate, also known as Nickel Sulphate, is a chemical compound commonly used as a fertilizer, in electroplating, and in the production of ceramics and batteries. When exposed to Nickel Ammonium Sulfate, rubber materials can experience swelling, cracking, and softening due to chemical attack. Additionally, the compound can react with additives and antioxidants in the rubber, leading to further material degradation. In order to prevent damage, it is important to regularly inspect rubber materials that come into contact with Nickel Ammonium Sulfate. If signs of wear and tear are found, the rubber should be replaced to prevent further damage.
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.
