Sodium cyanamide, also known as cyanuric acid or urea cyanamide, is a chemical compound used primarily in the production of plastics and rubber products. It is also used as a flame retardant, corrosion inhibitor, and an intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and detergents. Common types of failure when rubber is exposed to sodium cyanamide include accelerated aging, cracking, and hardening of the rubber. The chemical can also cause the rubber to lose its flexibility, become brittle, and become prone to cracking or tearing.
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.
