Sodium methylate is also known as Sodium Methylsulfate, Sodium Methoxide, and Sodium Hydroxide. It is commonly used in chemical synthesis, as a catalyst in chemical reactions, and as a preservative in food production.
When rubber is exposed to Sodium Methylate, it can cause degradation of the material due to its corrosive nature. Over time, exposure to Sodium Methylate can cause the rubber to become brittle and fragile, leading to cracks and eventual failure of the rubber product. Oxidative damage is also a risk, as Sodium Methylate can cause the rubber material to weaken and become more susceptible to cracking.
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.
