SHELL CARNEA 19 & 29 are hydrocarbon base oils. They are commonly used as hydraulic fluids, and as fuel and lubricating oils in both automotive and industrial applications.
Common types of failure when rubber is exposed to SHELL CARNEA 19 & 29 include swelling, softening, and the loss of elasticity. These issues are caused by the oils' ability to penetrate and soften the rubber, which can lead to the rubber material not being able to retain its shape or form. In addition, the oils can also cause the rubber to become brittle and easily break, leading to further issues.
