Quinine sulfate and quinine tartrate are both forms of quinine, an alkaloid that has been used for centuries to treat malaria. Quinine sulfate is the most commonly used form of quinine and is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry to treat malaria and other conditions. Quinine tartrate is also used in the treatment of malaria, but is less commonly used than the sulfate form.
When rubber materials are exposed to quinine, they can suffer a wide range of failures, ranging from swelling and softening to cracking and hardening. In extreme cases, the rubber can become brittle and eventually fracture. In addition, the rubber can become discolored, resulting in a loss of aesthetics. The exact type of failure depends on the type of rubber material, the concentration of quinine, and the duration of exposure.
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.
