Triphenyl phosphite (TPP) is also known as triphenyl phosphate (TPPh) and is used as an antioxidant and flame retardant. TPP is often used in the production of plastics, coatings, adhesives, and rubber products.
When rubber is exposed to TPP, it can cause a decrease in its mechanical properties such as tensile strength, elongation, and hardness. Additionally, TPP can cause the rubber to become brittle and more prone to cracking and failure. Long-term exposure to TPP can also lead to discoloration, changes in the rubber’s physical structure, and a decrease in overall performance.
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.
