Butene 20ethyl, also known as butter, is a chemical used in a variety of industries. It is commonly used as a solvent in the paint and coatings industry, as a fuel additive, and in the production of plasticizers. When exposed to rubber, butene 20ethyl can cause the rubber to become brittle and dry over time. This can lead to cracks, tears, and other signs of degradation. It is important to consider the type of rubber used when exposed to butene 20ethyl and to ensure that the rubber is of a high enough quality to resist the effects of the chemical.
