Sodium Salicylate, also known as salicylic acid sodium salt, is a chemical compound used in a variety of industries, such as pharmaceuticals, textiles, and food preservation. It can be used as an analgesic, an antiseptic, or a preservative.
When rubber is exposed to sodium salicylate, it can become brittle, which can lead to cracking and tearing. It can also become discolored due to its interactions with the rubber, and may become warped or distorted due to prolonged exposure. In addition, the rubber may become more susceptible to other forms of mechanical damage, such as abrasion or deformation.
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.
