Amyl Borate, also known as Pentyl Borate, is a colorless, odorless, and flammable liquid. It is commonly used as an intermediate in the synthesis of organic compounds, as well as in pharmaceuticals, fragrances, and flavors.
When rubber is exposed to Amyl Borate, it can cause deterioration of the rubber due to the chemical's corrosive properties. This can lead to cracking, loss of elasticity, and reduced tensile strength. In addition, Amyl Borate can cause the breakdown of certain rubber compounds, leading to a decrease in the material's ability to resist chemicals, water, and heat. It can also cause the rubber to discolor, harden, or swell.
