DIBENZYL ETHER is also known as Benzyl Ether or Phenyl Methyl Ether. It is a widely used organic solvent in the manufacture of dyes, resins, and pharmaceuticals. When rubber is exposed to DIBENZYL ETHER, it can cause swelling and softening due to the compound's ability to dissolve and disrupt the rubber's polymer chains. Additionally, these compounds can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack due to the production of hardening agents. Prolonged exposure to DIBENZYL ETHER can also lead to accelerated oxidation and degradation of the rubber.
