Sodium stannate, also known as sodium stannite, is a chemical compound composed of sodium and tin. It is commonly used as a corrosion inhibitor, anti-fouling agent, and in the production of tin-plated steel.
When rubber is exposed to sodium stannate, it can become brittle and crack due to the corrosive nature of the chemical. Additionally, sodium stannate can also cause the rubber to swell and lose its elasticity, which can lead to leaks and failure of the rubber seal.
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.
