Common names for Aminobenzoic Acid include Aminobenzoate, Aminobenzoic Acid, and Phenylcarboxylic Acid. Aminobenzoic Acid is a widely used chemical in the food, drug, and cosmetic industries, primarily as a preservative, sunscreen component, and flavoring agent. It is also used in the production of dyes.
When rubber is exposed to Aminobenzoic Acid, it is likely to experience accelerated aging, swelling, and hardening of the material. It can also cause cracks and brittle failure due to the acid’s corrosive nature. Furthermore, the presence of Aminobenzoic Acid in the environment may cause rubber to become brittle and crack over time due to oxidation.
