Phenylmercuric acetate is also known as phenylmercuric acetate and is used as a fungicide and bactericide in the following industries: agriculture, horticulture, and forestry. When rubber is exposed to phenylmercuric acetate, it can become brittle and crack due to the chemical's corrosive properties. Additionally, the rubber may swell, resulting in a loss of elasticity and reduced strength. The chemical can also cause discoloration, oxidation, and cracking of the rubber material, leading to a decrease in performance and lifespan.
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.
