Sebacic acid is also known as decanedioic acid and is commonly used as a plasticizer or dispersing agent in the manufacturing of plastics and rubber products. It is also used as an industrial lubricant, as a component of coatings, and as a fragrance ingredient used in perfumes and cosmetics.
When rubber is exposed to sebacic acid, it can cause swelling and softening of the rubber material. This can lead to decreased tensile strength, increased brittleness, and decreased elongation. Additionally, sebacic acid can cause degradation of the rubber, leading to cracking or crazing. This is especially true for rubber materials that are exposed to high levels of acid over long periods of time.
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.
