ANON, also known as 2-Amino-2-norbornane, is an organic compound primarily used as a curing agent in the rubber industry. It is also used as an intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to ANON include cracking, swelling, and hardening. Cracking occurs due to ANON breaking down the rubber molecules and causing them to become brittle. Swelling occurs due to ANON penetrating the rubber and causing it to expand, while hardening is caused by ANON breaking down the rubber molecules and making them less pliable.
