Acetylene Tetrachloride, also known as Tetrachloroethane or Perchloroethane, is a chemical compound used mainly as a solvent in various industries. Common applications for Acetylene Tetrachloride include dry cleaning, paint stripping, and as a degreaser for metal and plastic surfaces.
When rubber is exposed to Acetylene Tetrachloride, it can cause a variety of issues. These include swelling, hardening, cracking, and discoloration. Additionally, prolonged or repeated exposure to Acetylene Tetrachloride can lead to significant chemical degradation of the rubber material. It is important to ensure that all traces of Acetylene Tetrachloride are removed from the rubber after use to prevent any lasting damage.
