STANNIC TETRACHLORIDE, also known as Tin(IV) Tetrachloride, is a colorless, volatile liquid that is most commonly used as a precursor in the manufacture of organic tin compounds, in the production of organic and inorganic chemicals, and in the electroplating of metals. Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to STANNIC TETRACHLORIDE include cracking, hardening, and brittleness. The rubber can also become discolored, swell, and lose its flexibility when exposed to the chemical for extended periods of time. Additionally, STANNIC TETRACHLORIDE can cause the rubber to become brittle and prone to tearing. Moreover, the higher concentration of STANNIC TETRACHLORIDE increases the chances of rubber failure and can cause a much faster degradation of the rubber material.
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.
