Phenyl Ethyl Ether is also known as Phenetole or Phenylether. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet smell and can be found in certain essential oils. It is commonly used as a solvent in the production of paints, coatings, dyes, flavO-Rings, and perfumes.
Common types of rubber failures when exposed to Phenyl Ethyl Ether can include swelling, shrinkage, cracking, and hardening. Swelling of rubber materials can occur due to the absorption of the Ether, which can cause the rubber to become soft and pliable. Shrinkage can occur due to the evaporation of the Ether, leading to cracking and hardening of the rubber. In extreme cases, the rubber can become completely brittle and break.
