TETRAFLUOROMETHANE Resistant O-Rings and Seals

Tetrfluoromethane, also known as Freon-14, is a chemical used as a refrigerant to help cool and preserve food and beverages. It is also used as a propellant in aerosol cans, as well as a blowing agent for foams. Common industries that use Freon-14 include the food and beverage industry, automotive industry, and electronics industry.

When rubber is exposed to Freon-14, it can cause the rubber to become brittle or crack over time. This is due to the chemical reaction between the Freon-14 and the rubber, which can lead to cracking, shrinking, and discoloration of the rubber. Additionally, the chemical can cause the rubber to swell and lose its elasticity, making it less effective for use in applications that require flexibility and sealing.
