Nitrochlorobenzene, also known as nitroform, is commonly used in the production of dyes, explosives, and pharmaceuticals. It is also used as an agricultural fungicide, and as a solvent for oils, waxes, fats, and resins.
Common types of failure when rubber is exposed to nitrochlorobenzene include swelling, distortion of the rubber, hardening, cracking, discoloration, and loss of tensile strength. Additionally, the rubber may become brittle, or the chemical may penetrate the protective layers of the rubber, leading to a breakdown of the 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.
