Barium chlorate is also known as baryta chlorata or barium trichlorate. It is commonly used as an oxidizer in rocket propellants, fireworks, and explosives, as well as in the production of matches and other combustibles.
When rubber is exposed to barium chlorate, it can become brittle and prone to cracking and tearing due to the reactive nature of the compound. Additionally, barium chlorate can corrode rubber, causing it to weaken, break down, and become brittle over time. The rubber may also swell, deform, or discolor due to the reaction.
