Calcium bisulfide, also known as calcium sulfide, is a chemical compound used in various industrial processes such as wastewater treatment and oil and gas production. It is also used as an additive in cement and rubber production.
When rubber is exposed to calcium bisulfide, it can experience a number of different types of failure, such as swelling, cracking, discoloration, and loss of physical properties. The rubber material can also become brittle, resulting in decreased elasticity and the breakdown of the material over time. In extreme cases, the rubber material may break down completely and become unusable. Additionally, the chemical can cause the rubber to corrode and become permeable, leading to the loss of air or water tightness.
