Sodium aluminate is also known as sodium aluminium oxide and is a white crystalline powder. It is commonly used to create a variety of compounds such as alumina, for use in paper production, in the chemical and metallurgical industries, and in wastewater treatment.
When rubber is exposed to sodium aluminate, it may become prematurely brittle and prone to cracking, as well as becoming discolored and stained. In addition, the rubber may become too soft, leading to a loss of shape and function. The rubber may also become more prone to swelling, which can further reduce its function.
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.
