Barium cyanide, also known as barium ferrocyanide or barium ultramarine, is a chemical compound used in a variety of industries. It is commonly used in the production of inks, dyes, and pigments, as well as in the refining of gold and silver. It can also be used in the production of explosives.
When rubber is exposed to barium cyanide, it can become brittle and hard due to the corrosive nature of the compound. Additionally, barium cyanide can seep into the rubber, causing it to weaken, become brittle, and degrade over time. The rubber may also swell, deform, and discolor due to the reaction. In extreme cases, the rubber may even crack or tear due to the reaction.
