DEXTRIN is also known as dextrin and is a type of sugar polymer used as an adhesive, thickening agent and emulsifier in various industrial applications. It is commonly used in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
When rubber is exposed to DEXTRIN, common types of failures that may occur include premature aging and cracking, swelling, and loss of elasticity. These types of failures usually occur over time due to the chemical's ability to break down the rubber's molecular structure. Additionally, DEXTRIN can cause rubber to become brittle and harden, leading to further degradation of the rubber material.
