DIMETHYL PHENYL CARBINOL, also known as DMP, is a volatile organic compound used mostly in the production of fragrances, as an intermediate for chemical syntheses, and as a fuel additive. It is also used in some industrial applications as a solvent.
When rubber is exposed to DMP, it can cause swelling, softening, and embrittlement of the rubber. This can lead to cracking, tearing, and other physical deformation of the rubber. Additionally, DMP can corrode metal parts which can be in contact with the rubber, leading to further weakening and failure of the rubber seal.
