Methyl Phenylacetate, also known as Methyl phenylacetate, is an organic compound that is used as a solvent in various industrial and commercial applications. It is commonly used as a solvent in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, adhesives, printing inks, coatings, and agricultural chemicals.
When rubber is exposed to Methyl Phenylacetate, it can cause swelling and softening of the rubber, cracking, and embrittlement. Additionally, the compound can cause the rubber to become brittle and prone to cracking. Over time, this can lead to a loss of physical properties and product failure. In some cases, the solvent can also cause a loss of color, odor, and taste, which can be a major issue in certain applications.
