Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide or titania, is a white-colored chemical compound used in a variety of industries, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, paints, and plastics. Titanium dioxide is a strong oxidizing agent and is used in the manufacture of titanium-based chemicals, such as titanium tetrachloride.
When exposed to titanium dioxide, rubber materials can experience a variety of failures, including cracking, swelling, and discoloration. Additionally, if titanium dioxide is present in an environment with high levels of humidity, it can lead to oxidation of the rubber, resulting in a loss of strength and flexibility. In extreme cases, rubber exposed to titanium dioxide can become brittle and break apart.
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.
