Butylbenzoic Acid, also known as p-Butylbenzoic Acid, is a carboxylic acid widely used in the production of lubricants and surfactants. It is widely used in the manufacturing of detergents, dyes, and cosmetics, as well as in the production of synthetic rubber.
When rubber is exposed to Butylbenzoic Acid, it can cause swelling and softening of the rubber material, leading to decreased elasticity, increased brittleness, and a reduction in the mechanical strength of the rubber. The rubber may also exhibit signs of cracking, discoloration, and corrosion, leading to a greater likelihood of premature failure.
