FURFURYL ALCOHOL Resistant O-Rings and Seals

Furfuryl Alcohol, also known as 2-furancarbinol or furfural alcohol, is a widely used organic compound. It is used as a solvent in the production of resins and plastics, and is also used as a fuel additive in the automotive industry. Additionally, it is used as a synthetic intermediate for the production of chemical products and as a softening agent for rubber.

When exposed to Furfuryl Alcohol, rubber can suffer from a range of degradation phenomena, including swelling, softening, and embrittlement. This can lead to reduced sealing performance and eventual failure of the rubber seal. To minimize the risk of failure, rubber seals should be checked and replaced more frequently when exposed to Furfuryl Alcohol.
