What You Need to Know About Selecting Rubber Sheets Resistant to Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)

Methyl Ethyl Ketone, abbreviated as MEK and also known as Butanone, is a chemical compound characterized as a colorless, flammable, and easily evaporable liquid with a sharp and sweet odor. It's a polar solvent, soluble in water, and commonly used in the production of adhesives, paints, inks, coatings, and as a cleaning agent in various industries.
 
But did you know? Not all rubber sheets are suitable for use with Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK), even those like Viton (VITON/FKM) rubber sheets, known for their chemical resistance.
 
When selecting rubber sheets for use with MEK, they must be resistant to polar solvents. The best choices for MEK resistance are EPDM rubber sheets and IIR, or Butyl rubber sheets. These two types of rubber are non-polar, making them resistant to polar solvents like Methyl Ethyl Ketone.
 
Note: Even after choosing the right type of rubber sheet for MEK, it's crucial to consider the manufacturing formula of each brand, company, or factory's rubber sheets. This affects their performance and lifespan. Selecting the appropriate rubber sheets enhances work efficiency, reduces long-term maintenance costs and waste, and contributes to reducing global warming.
