Silicone O-Ring Odours

Postby ockelford » Tue May 10, 2016 15:04

Dear All,

A quick question - I have ordered some rusty red coloured silicon rubber O-Rings for my fermenters / boiler / HLT / Mashtun - up to now been using home made washers from silicone sheet, thought I'd get something easier to clean etc...

They seem to have a mild plasticy smell, a bit like old school science labs, and while I know you can often get away with it, I'm just not sure whether to risk it - anyone had any experience with these, or any tips for cleaning the smell away entirely? Just a thought.
