Gulf Crown Grease is an oil-based lubricant composed primarily of petroleum and sulfuric acid. It is commonly used in industrial and automotive applications to lubricate parts, reduce wear and tear, and protect against corrosion. Common uses include in the mining and manufacturing industries, as well as in the automotive industry for lubricating engine parts and piston rings.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to Gulf Crown Grease include swelling, cracking, discoloration, and embrittlement of the rubber. These types of failures can occur due to the acidic nature of the lubricant, which can cause the rubber to lose its elasticity. In some cases, the rubber seal may become so brittle that it breaks or shatters. In other cases, the seal may become sticky and adhere to other parts. It is important to test rubber seals for compatibility with Gulf Crown Grease before using them in applications.
Viton ® o-rings from Marco Rubber offer excellent compatibility with a range of chemicals, oils and resist high temperatures up to 400F. Viton ® is also known as FKM made of fluoroelastomer one of the most versatile and widely used sealing materials.
