SR06 FUEL is also known as ethyl mercaptan and is commonly used as an odorant and a warning agent in fuels and lubricants. It is also used as a plasticizer in rubber manufacturing to give the rubber more flexibility and strength.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to SR06 FUEL include degradation of the rubber material, discoloration, and a decrease in the elasticity of the rubber. Additionally, long-term exposure to SR06 FUEL can lead to a decrease in the resilience of the rubber material and an increase in the vulnerability of the rubber to other chemicals.
