Dibutyl sebacate (also known as DBS) is a plasticizer used in the plastic, paint, and rubber industries. It is used to make products more flexible, to enhance their durability, and to make them less brittle. It is also used in personal care products such as nail polish and hairsprays, as well as food packaging.
When rubber is exposed to dibutyl sebacate, it can cause swelling, softening, and cracking. The rubber can also become brittle and lose its strength and elasticity, leading to brittle fractures. Exposure to dibutyl sebacate can also cause the rubber to discolor and become brittle, resulting in premature failure.
