Sodium oleate is also known as sodium oleic acid and is commonly used as an emulsifier, surfactant, and lubricant in various industries such as detergents, cleaners, and cosmetics. It is also used in the paper and textile industries as a sizing agent, and in the food industry as a flavoring agent.
When rubber is exposed to sodium oleate, the rubber may become discolored, brittle, and start to degrade. The rubber may also swell, soften, and become tacky, leading to a decrease in its physical and mechanical properties. Additionally, the rubber may become oxidized and corroded, leading to a decrease in its durability.
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.
