Potassium antimonate, also known as potassium antimonyl, is a chemical compound commonly used in various industries such as paper-making, tanning, and pharmaceuticals. It is also used as a fungicide and flame retardant.
When rubber is exposed to potassium antimonate, it can cause the rubber to become brittle, swell, and crack. Additionally, prolonged exposure to this chemical can result in accelerated degradation of the rubber material. In certain cases, the rubber may also discolor and become sticky due to the chemical's acidic properties.
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.
