Antimony trifluoride (also known as antimony(V) fluoride and SbF3) is a chemical compound with a wide range of uses. It is most commonly used in the production of semiconductors, optical lenses, and catalysts. It is also used in the production of pharmaceuticals, coatings, and other chemicals.
When rubber is exposed to antimony trifluoride, its surface can become corroded and weakened. This can lead to physical erosion, chemical attack, and environmental stress cracking, which can cause the rubber to become brittle and prone to premature failure. Additionally, antimony trifluoride can cause discoloration, surface cracking, and oxidation of the rubber material.
