Sodium perchlorate is also known as sodium perchlorate monohydrate, sodium perchlorate anhydrous, or just perchlorate. It is a water-soluble salt commonly used as an oxidizing agent. It is widely used in the production of rocket fuel, fireworks, explosives, and airbag inflators.
When rubber is exposed to sodium perchlorate, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack. The chemical can also lead to discoloration and swelling of the rubber, making it less durable and more prone to failure. Additionally, the chemical can corrode rubber, eventually leading to holes and tears in the material.
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.
