Photographic emulsions are also known as photo emulsions and are used in the photographic industry to create images. They are used in a variety of industries including medical, industrial, scientific, and commercial photography. Common uses include making X-rays, creating film, and developing prints from negatives.
When rubber is exposed to photographic emulsions, the rubber can become brittle and cracked. This can lead to seal failure or reduced elasticity, which can result in leaking or reduced effectiveness of the seal. Additionally, rubber can become discolored or stained due to interactions with the photographic emulsions, which can reduce the aesthetic appeal of the rubber product.
