TOSYL ARGININE METHYL ESTER (TAME) is also known as N-tosyl-L-arginine methyl ester hydrochloride or N-tosyl-L-arginine methyl ester. It is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a reagent for the synthesis of proteins, peptides and other compounds. It can also be used as a stabilizer in the production of polymers and as a catalyst in organic synthesis.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to TOSYL ARGININE METHYL ESTER (TAME) include swelling, softening, discoloration, cracking, and degradation. Swelling is a result of the chemical’s reaction with the rubber, which causes it to expand, leading to a weakened seal. Softening of the rubber can also occur, which makes it more susceptible to damage. Discoloration can occur due to the reaction between the chemical and the rubber, resulting in an undesirable color change. Cracking is caused by the chemical’s reaction with the rubber, leading to the formation of small cracks. Finally, degradation can occur when rubber is exposed to TOSYL ARGININE METHYL ESTER (
