Propylamine, also known as N-propylamine, is an organic compound that is used in the manufacture of a variety of products, including plastics, rubber, and pharmaceuticals. It is also used as an intermediate in the production of dyes and pesticides.
When rubber is exposed to propylamine, it can suffer from a few common issues. The most common issue is that rubber can become brittle and crack, or it can swell and become soft and sticky. Prolonged exposure can also lead to the rubber becoming discolored and fading, as well as a decrease in its tensile strength. Additionally, propylamine can cause the rubber to become sticky and gummy, making it difficult to handle.
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.
