Chloronitroethane, also known as nitrochloroethane, is a chemical compound used as a solvent and intermediate in the production of rubber compounds, pharmaceuticals, and dyes. It is also used as a degreasing agent and in the production of certain pesticides.
When rubber is exposed to chloronitroethane, it can lead to a number of different types of failures. The most common type of failure is a breakdown in the rubber's structural integrity due to the breakdown of its chemical bonds. This can lead to a weakening of the rubber and can result in cracking, tearing, and other types of physical damage. Additionally, chloronitroethane can cause a breakdown of the rubber's surface properties, leading to discoloration and other forms of physical damage. It can also cause a reduction in the rubber's flexibility and elasticity, resulting in a decrease in its performance.
