Zinc diethyl dithiocarbamate is also known as zineb, diethyl zinc dithiocarbamate, and Zinc diethyldithiocarbamate. It is a widely used fungicide and insecticide, primarily used in the agricultural industry to protect crops from fungal and insect damage. In the rubber industry, zinc diethyl dithiocarbamate is used as a vulcanizing agent, as it helps to strengthen rubber during the vulcanization process.
When rubber is exposed to zinc diethyl dithiocarbamate, it can cause a range of failures, including cracking, swelling, discolouration, and embrittlement. In some cases, the rubber may become brittle and break down more easily than normal. Additionally, zinc diethyl dithiocarbamate can cause rubber to become tacky and stick together, which can lead to reduced performance and premature failure.
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.
