DTE LIGHT OIL, also known as light mineral oil, is a type of petroleum-based lubricant commonly used in industrial machinery and automotive applications. It is used to create a thin film between moving parts, reducing friction and wear. It is also used to reduce corrosion of metals and other materials.
When rubber materials are exposed to DTE LIGHT OIL, the most common type of failure is swelling and softening of the rubber. This can lead to the rubber losing its shape and becoming too flexible to seal properly. Additionally, DTE LIGHT OIL can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack, resulting in leaks. It can also cause the rubber to become discolored and oxidize over time.
