Sodium Trichloroacetate, also known as sodium trichloroacetate, is a common chemical used in a variety of industrial applications. It is often used as a bleaching agent, an acid-base indicator, an oxidation catalyst, and a polymerization initiator. In the rubber industry, it is used as a vulcanizing agent and as a softener.
When rubber is exposed to sodium trichloroacetate, it can suffer from premature failure due to the chemical's corrosive properties. In addition, the chemical can cause embrittlement, swelling, and cracking of the rubber material, resulting in a decreased lifespan of the rubber product. Furthermore, it can cause the rubber to become discolored, resulting in a diminished aesthetic appeal.
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.
