Pyrrole is also known as Pyrrol, Pyrrole Ring, Pyrrolidine, and Imidazole. It is widely used as a building block in organic synthesis and as a catalyst in a variety of industrial processes. Common uses of pyrrole include the production of dyes and pigments, plastics and rubber, and specialty drugs.
When rubber is exposed to Pyrrole, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack. This is especially true for rubber materials that contain sulfur, as Pyrrole can react with the sulfur and cause the rubber to degrade. In some cases, the rubber can also swell and become distorted due to the reaction with the Pyrrole. Additionally, exposure to Pyrrole can also cause discoloration and fading of the rubber 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.
