Strontium Hydroxide is also known as Strontium Hydrate, Strontium Oxide Hydrate, and Strontia. It is commonly used in the production of glass, ceramic glazes, and as a stabilizer in plastics.
Common failures when rubber is exposed to Strontium Hydroxide include swelling, softening, cracking, and discoloration. Prolonged exposure can cause rubber materials to swell and soften, leading to reduced performance and material loss. Additionally, Strontium Hydroxide can cause discoloration of rubber, leading to an unappealing appearance. Cracking can also occur as a result of prolonged exposure to Strontium Hydroxide.
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.
