Acrylonitrile, also known as vinyl cyanide and cyanoethylene, is a colorless and volatile liquid with a pungent odor. It is used to manufacture a variety of products, including plastics, synthetic rubber, fibers, and coatings.
When rubber is exposed to acrylonitrile, the rubber may become brittle and crack due to the chemical's strong solvent properties. Additionally, the chemical's corrosive nature can cause the rubber to swell, leading to decreased mechanical properties and decreased resistance to wear and tear. The chemical can also lead to discoloration and deterioration of the rubber over time.
