MOPAR Brake Fluid is a type of polyalkylene glycol-based (PAG) brake fluid. It is a synthetic oil-based fluid which is used in the braking systems of automobiles to provide lubrication and protection from corrosion. MOPAR Brake Fluid is commonly used in vehicles made by Chrysler and other automobile companies.
When rubber is exposed to MOPAR Brake Fluid, it can experience a variety of types of failure, such as swelling, softening, cracking, and chemical attack. Swelling is caused by the brake fluid molecules penetrating the rubber, while softening can be caused by the fluid breaking down the polymer chains. Cracking can be caused by the brake fluid breaking down the rubber’s crosslinks and chemical attack can be caused by the fluid breaking down the rubber’s backbone. In all cases, these failures can lead to premature failure of the rubber product.
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.
