VERSILUBE F050 is a type of synthetic hydraulic fluid made from a combination of synthetic esters and vegetable oils. Common uses for VERSILUBE F050 include hydraulic machinery, machinery lubrication, and as a coolant in engines.
When rubber is exposed to VERSILUBE F050, it can cause the rubber to swell and soften due to the presence of vegetable oils. This can lead to a decrease in strength and durability of the rubber, as well as discoloration. Additionally, the synthetic esters present in the fluid can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack, leading to further degradation.
