Amy Naphthalene, also known as beta-Naphthol, is an organic compound that is used in a variety of industries, such as the production of dyes, pesticides, and rubber. It is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is colorless and has a strong odor.
When rubber is exposed to Amy Naphthalene, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and cracked. This can lead to premature failure of the rubber due to the lack of flexibility and strength. Additionally, it can cause the rubber to swell and degrade over time, leading to further degradation and potential leakage or breakdowns in the system. Furthermore, it can cause the rubber to become discolored, which can have an adverse effect on the aesthetics of the product.
