Abstract:

Polyalkylene glycol has been suggested as a replacement for DB grade castor oil in underwater sound transducers, primarily because of its low viscosity. The results of measurements reported here show that polyalkylene glycol is at least as compatible as castor oil with butyl and neoprene. Type W rubbers, and it is only somewhat less compatible with neoprene 35003 and natural rubber 35007.
