Amyl Cinnamic Aldehyde, also known as Cinnamaldehyde, is a naturally occurring organic compound that is widely used in various industries. It is a major component of essential oils such as cinnamon, cassia, and others, and is used as a flavoring agent in food, beverages, and pharmaceuticals. It is also used in the manufacture of fragrances and perfumes, and in the production of cosmetics, topical skin care products, and air fresheners.
When rubber is exposed to Cinnamaldehyde, it can cause a variety of types of failure. Depending on the type of rubber, the chemical can cause swelling, softening, cracking, hardening, and discoloration. Additionally, the chemical can cause the rubber to become brittle and more likely to fail under normal stress and strain. In some cases, the chemical can also cause the rubber to become sticky and tacky, making it difficult to move or handle.
