Chloethanol, also known as Chlordane, is an organochlorine compound used in insecticides and as a wood preservative. It is used in agriculture to control insect pests, and can also be found in paint, varnish, and other coatings. In the rubber industry, Chlordane is used as an antioxidant in rubber products, and as a flame retardant in plastics.
When rubber is exposed to Chlordane, the most common type of failure is physical degradation due to the chemical's reactive properties. Chlordane can cause rubber to become brittle, crack, and degrade over time. Additionally, it can cause the rubber to swell, leading to decreased performance and further physical degradation.
