Sodium cyanate, also known as sodium salt of isocyanic acid or isocyanic acid sodium salt, is a commonly used chemical in the production of plastics, rubber, and pharmaceuticals. It is also used as a flame retardant and corrosion inhibitor in a wide range of industries. Common types of failure when rubber is exposed to sodium cyanate include accelerated aging, cracking, and hardening of the rubber. The chemical can also cause the rubber to become brittle and lose its flexibility, as well as 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.
