Sodium Persulfate is a commonly used oxidizing agent that is also known as disodium persulfate, sodium salt, sodium persulphate, sodium pyrosulfate, and sodium salt of peroxydisulfuric acid. It is used extensively in industries such as water treatment, paper, textile, and leather manufacturing, as a bleaching agent, for stain removal, and for soil decontamination.
When rubber is exposed to Sodium Persulfate, the rubber can become brittle and crack as a result of oxidation. In addition, the material’s physical properties can degrade over time due to the corrosive effects of the chemical. In extreme cases, the rubber may become completely destroyed. In order to avoid such failures, rubber materials must be specifically designed and formulated to resist the corrosive effects of Sodium Persulfate.
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.
