Bromobenzene is also known as phenyl bromide, benzene bromide, and bromo-benzol. It is used in the production of dyes, pesticides, and rubber chemicals. It is also used as a solvent for fats, oils, waxes, and resins.
When rubber is exposed to bromobenzene, it can cause swelling and softening of the rubber material. This can lead to cracking and brittleness of the rubber due to the loss of strength and elasticity. Bromobenzene can also react with the rubber material to form a sticky surface, which can cause adhesion problems in the rubber parts. In extreme cases, exposure to bromobenzene can cause the rubber to break down completely.
