Hydraulic oil, petroleum base aircraft is also known as hydraulic fluid and is a type of hydraulic fluid used in aircraft applications. It is composed of petroleum-based oil and other additives, and is designed to provide superior protection against wear and corrosion. It is commonly used in aircraft applications to power landing gear, brakes, and other aircraft systems.
When rubber is exposed to hydraulic oil, petroleum base aircraft, the rubber can become softened and distorted due to the absorption of the fluid. The rubber can also become brittle and cracked due to the aggressive nature of the fluid. Additionally, the rubber can become weakened due to the corrosive properties of the fluid, leading to premature failure of the rubber. It is important to use the correct type of rubber material for applications involving this fluid to ensure proper performance and longevity.
