Gulf Harmony Oils, also known as GHO, are commonly used in industrial, automotive, and marine applications as lubricants, coolants, and corrosion inhibitors. They are also used to reduce wear and tear on metal and other surfaces.
When rubber is exposed to Gulf Harmony Oils, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and degrade over time. This can lead to cracking, splitting, and other types of physical damage. Additionally, the rubber may become discolored or deformed due to its exposure to the fluids. The rubber may also become more vulnerable to other environmental factors such as heat, humidity, and UV light. It is important to ensure that the correct type of rubber is used for the application in order to avoid potential failure of rubber components due to incompatibility with the fluids.
