PINE NEEDLE OIL, also known as Turpentine Oil or Turpentine, is an essential oil derived from the needles of pine trees. It is commonly used as a flavoring agent in food and beverages, as well as a disinfectant and insect repellent.
When rubber is exposed to PINE NEEDLE OIL, it can become brittle and prone to cracking. The oil can cause the rubber to become dry and brittle, leading to the loss of elasticity. Additionally, PINE NEEDLE OIL can cause rubber to become discolored and swell, leading to seal failure and leakage. The oil can also cause premature degradation of the rubber and reduce its effectiveness as a sealant. Additionally, the oil can interact with other chemicals and cause further degradation of the rubber.
