HYJET is a common name for the chemical Hydyne. It is an industrial cleaning agent used in many industries, such as automotive, aerospace, and medical. It is used to clean metals, plastics, and other materials, as well as to remove paint, grease, and oil.
When rubber is exposed to Hydyne, it can cause a number of types of failure. These include swelling, cracking, hardening, and discoloration. The rubber may also become brittle, which can cause it to rupture or tear upon contact with other materials. Additionally, Hydyne can cause the rubber to become weaker and less elastic, which could lead to premature failure.
EPDM o-rings, or ethylene propylene o-rings, are a family of synthetic elastomers with lower cost steam and chemical resistance, particularly for applications involving solvents, acids and other mild chemicals. Marco Rubber has the world’s largest inventory network of EPDM o-rings and made on demand custom manufacturing often without tooling fees, so the EPDM o-rings you need are always available. Whether it’s for water systems, braking systems, medical, pharmaceutical, food or dairy use, you can count on Marco Rubber to deliver your o-rings fast and efficiently.
