MIL0G07187 is also known as 2-ethyl-1-hexanol and is commonly used as a chemical intermediate in the production of plasticizers and as a solvent for various resins. Common industries that would use this chemical include adhesives, coatings, and lubricants.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to MIL0G07187 include swelling, discoloration, and cracking. Swelling occurs when the rubber absorbs the chemical, causing it to expand and become brittle. Discoloration can occur from the chemical reacting with the rubber, causing it to turn yellow or brown. Finally, cracking can occur due to the chemical's ability to break down the rubber's polymer chains.
