DIBUTYL CELLOSOLVE ADIPATE, also known as DBAC, is a clear, colorless, and slightly viscous organic solvent. It is commonly used in paints, coatings, adhesives, and printing inks. When rubber is exposed to DIBUTYL CELLOSOLVE ADIPATE, it can cause swelling, cracking, embrittlement, and loss of elasticity due to the solvent's ability to dissolve in the rubber and disrupt the polymer chains. Additionally, these compounds can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack due to the production of hardening agents. Prolonged exposure to DIBUTYL CELLOSOLVE ADIPATE can also lead to accelerated oxidation and degradation of the rubber.
Fluorosilicone o-rings are a hybrid of silicone and FKM resulting in great jet fuel resistance with high and low temperature performance. Also widely used in semiconductor Ashing equipment with strong resistance to oxygen plasma, FVMQ fluorosilicone o-rings also feature excellent flexibility, compression resistance, aging and sunlight resistance, and overall wide range of basic chemical resistance.
