MIL0O03503 Resistant O-Rings and Seals

MIL0O03503 is more commonly known as Malic Acid. Malic acid is an organic compound found naturally in fruits and vegetables. It is also used in food and beverages, as a flavoring agent, preservative, and as a pH adjuster. It is also used in industrial applications such as paint, plastic, and rubber manufacturing.

When rubber materials are exposed to malic acid, the chemical can cause a number of failures. The acid can cause the rubber to swell, which can lead to a decrease in tensile strength and an increase in permeability. It can also cause embrittlement of the rubber, making it more prone to cracking and breaking. Additionally, it can lead to corrosion of the rubber, resulting in discoloration, cracking, and other physical signs of deterioration.
