Cellosolve Butyl, also known as Butoxyethanol, is a colorless liquid commonly used as a solvent in various industrial applications, such as in cleaning, degreasing, paint and adhesive removal, and as a carrier in pesticide and herbicide formulations. Common types of rubber that may fail when exposed to Cellosolve Butyl include natural rubber, nitrile rubber, and butyl rubber. Natural rubber can become brittle and crack due to the solvent, while nitrile rubber can swell and soften, and butyl rubber can become brittle and lose its seal integrity.
