MLO08200, also known as Octyl Sebacate, is a clear and odorless liquid used in a variety of industrial applications as a plasticizer, lubricant, and flame retardant. It is also used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food products as a stabilizing agent and emollient.
When rubber materials are exposed to MLO08200, the rubber can become brittle and crack due to the chemical's low temperature fluidity. In addition, the rubber can become permanently discolored and the chemical can penetrate the rubber material causing the rubber to swell and resulting in cracks and other failures. The chemical can also cause the rubber to degrade, leading to a complete breakdown of the material.
