MIL-0L-06387 is a synthetic rubber, also known as Butyl rubber, which is used in a variety of applications, including automotive parts, seals and gaskets, and hoses. It is resistant to many chemicals, oils, and temperatures, and is a good insulator of electricity.
When exposed to MIL-0L-06387, rubber can experience chemical deterioration which manifests in the form of swelling, softening, and cracking of the rubber. These issues can be further exacerbated by exposure to acids, bases, and ketones, which can cause deterioration of the rubber. Additionally, Butyl rubber has a low resistance to ozone and UV light, which can also lead to rubber failure.
