Nitrofluorobenzene, also known as NFBE, is a chemical compound often used as an intermediate in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and flavors. It is also used as a solvent in various industrial applications. Common uses of nitrofluorobenzene include paint strippers, degreasers, cleaners, and fuel additives.
When rubber is exposed to nitrofluorobenzene, it can cause swelling, softening, and cracking due to the chemical's solvent action. It can also lead to embrittlement and decreased tensile strength in the rubber. Nitrofluorobenzene can also cause corrosion in certain metal components, which can lead to further mechanical failure in the rubber. Additionally, it can cause discoloration of certain rubber compounds.
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.
