Strontium acetate, also known as strontium diacetate, is a white crystalline salt that is commonly used in the production of glass. It is also used as a mordant in dyeing fabrics, a mineral supplement in animal feed, and as a catalyst in certain chemical reactions. When exposed to strontium acetate, common rubber materials such as nitrile rubber and natural rubber can experience a breakdown in physical integrity due to the chemical's corrosive properties. This can lead to cracking, swelling, and discoloration of the rubber. Additionally, the acidic nature of the chemical can break down the rubber's bond with adhesives that are used to join the rubber to other materials, resulting in premature failure of the rubber due to a weakened bond.
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.
