Zinc cyanide, also known as Zinc Blau, is a chemical compound used primarily in electroplating and metal finishing. It is also used in the production of rubber products and in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals.
When rubber is exposed to zinc cyanide, there can be a number of detrimental effects. It can cause the rubber to become brittle, leading to cracking and flaking. Additionally, zinc cyanide can cause a breakdown in the rubber's physical and chemical properties, leading to a decrease in the material's strength and durability. Prolonged exposure to zinc cyanide can also be toxic, leading to skin and respiratory irritation.
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.
