Carbon disulfide, also known as carbon disulphide, is a chemical compound used in various industries such as the production of insecticides, solvents, and rubber products. Common uses of carbon disulfide include the production of rayon, cellophane, and vulcanizing rubber.
When rubber is exposed to carbon disulfide, it can cause an array of failure types, from cracking and swelling to a decrease in rubber elasticity. Carbon disulfide can also cause rubber to become brittle, reducing its overall strength and durability. Additionally, due to its highly volatile nature, carbon disulfide can cause rubber to become embrittled, reducing its flexibility and making it prone to cracking and chipping.
