Sebacic acid is also known as decanedioic acid and is created from refining castor oil. It is most commonly used in the manufacture of lubricants, plastics, and surfactants. When exposed to sebacic acid, rubber materials can suffer from cracking, swelling, and hardening. These failures can be attributed to the corrosive nature of the acid, which can cause the rubber to become brittle and can lead to further physical damage.
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.
