Chlorobutane, also known as 1,2-dichloro-1-butene, is a colorless, flammable gas with a sweet odor. It is used as an intermediate in the production of rubber, plastics, synthetic resins, and other chemicals. It is also used as a solvent in various industrial processes.
When exposed to chlorobutane, rubber can experience a range of different failures, depending on the type of rubber. Hard rubber components, such as O-rings and gaskets, can become brittle and cracked, while softer rubbers can become swollen and distorted. In addition, chlorobutane can corrode metal components, leading to further deterioration of the rubber over time.
