Sodium persulfate, also known as disodium persulfate or sodium perester, is an odorless, white crystalline solid that is a powerful oxidizing agent. Common uses of sodium persulfate include bleaching, water treatment, polymer production, and the manufacture of paper, detergents, and pharmaceuticals.
When exposed to sodium persulfate, rubber can become brittle and can start to crack. Additionally, the chemical can cause discoloration and swelling of the rubber, leading to decreased durability and an increased chance of failure. The chemical can also corrode rubber, leading to holes and tears in the material over time.
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.
