DIISOPROPYL KETONE is also known as 2,6-dimethyl-4-heptanone and is commonly used as a solvent in the production of inks, paints and adhesives. It is also used as a synthetic flavoring ingredient in food.
When rubber is exposed to DIISOPROPYL KETONE, it can cause swelling and cracking, due to the solvent's ability to penetrate the rubber material. In addition, the solvent can also cause premature degradation of the rubber, leading to brittle and weak material. It is important to select rubber materials that are compatible with DIISOPROPYL KETONE in order to avoid any potential failure.
EPDM o-rings, or ethylene propylene o-rings, are a family of synthetic elastomers with lower cost steam and chemical resistance, particularly for applications involving solvents, acids and other mild chemicals.
