Diester synthetic lubricants, also known as diester-based lubricants, are a type of oil derived from a combination of diester molecules and other additives. They are widely used in automotive, industrial, and aerospace applications due to their superior performance and low environmental impact. Common uses of diester synthetic lubricants include engine oils, gear oils, and hydraulic fluids.
When rubber components are exposed to diester synthetic lubricants, swelling and softening of the rubber can occur. This can lead to a decrease in strength, durability, and performance of the rubber seal. Additionally, the rubber can become more susceptible to cracking and tearing, leading to a decrease in sealing capabilities. Over time, the rubber can also break down due to the presence of diester synthetic lubricants, resulting in a decrease in reliability.
