MIL0H022251 is commonly known as Polychloroprene, Neoprene and Chloroprene. It is a synthetic rubber and is widely used in many industries such as automotive, construction, marine, aerospace, and electrical applications. Common uses include gaskets, seals, adhesives, insulation, and protective coatings.
When rubber materials are exposed to MIL0H022251, they are susceptible to swelling, cracking, hardening, and embrittlement. Swelling occurs when the rubber absorbs the chemical, causing it to expand and become softer. Cracking occurs when the rubber becomes brittle due to the chemical, resulting in the formation of cracks or small holes. Hardening occurs when the rubber becomes harder and more rigid due to the chemical. Embrittlement occurs when the rubber becomes brittle due to the chemical, resulting in a decrease in its elasticity.
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.
