Isododecane is also known as neopentyl glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate and is used as a lubricant, thermoplastic elastomer, and surfactant in a variety of industries.
Rubber materials exposed to isododecane can suffer from swelling, cracking, and brittleness. Over time, prolonged exposure to the chemical can cause the rubber to become sticky or tacky, and the rubber can also become discolored or stained. In some cases, the rubber can become soft and lose its structural integrity. The effects of isododecane on rubber can be accelerated by heat and light.
