Sodium Hydrogen Sulfate, also known as Sodium Hydrogen Sulphate, Sodium Bisulfate, or Sodium Acid Sulfate, is a versatile compound used in a variety of industries. It is used as a food additive, preservative, cleaning agent, and pH adjuster. It is also used as a catalyst in certain chemical reactions.
When rubber is exposed to Sodium Hydrogen Sulfate, it can cause premature cracking, shrinkage, and loss of elasticity. Over time, the rubber will become brittle and unable to withstand the pressure of its intended use. Additionally, the chemical can cause discoloration and degradation of the rubber, leading to a decrease in its overall quality.
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.
