SOCONY MOBILE Type A is also known as mineral oil and is commonly used in a variety of industries, including lubrication, fuel additives, and as a dielectric coolant. It is also used in some automotive and industrial applications.
When rubber is exposed to SOCONY MOBILE Type A, common types of failure include swelling, cracking, and loss of strength due to the oil's ability to break down the rubber's protective layers. In addition, SOCONY MOBILE Type A can also cause softening and embrittlement due to its ability to leach out plasticizers. This can lead to reduced flexibility and tear strength of the rubber. In extreme cases, it can even lead to complete dissolution of the rubber.
