Sodium Bifluoride, also known as sodium fluoride or fluorosilicic acid, is a chemical compound containing sodium and fluorine atoms. It is commonly used as a pesticide, water treatment agent, corrosion inhibitor, and preservative. When rubber is exposed to sodium bifluoride, it can cause the rubber to become brittle, dry, and cracked. This can lead to the rubber cracking or breaking, as well as becoming discolored. In addition, the rubber may become more susceptible to environmental factors such as water and temperature.
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.
