Chlorsulphonic acid is also known as chlorosulfonic acid, sulfochloric acid, and sulfonyl chloride. This chemical is most commonly used as an intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, surfactants, and dyes. It is also used in oil refining, rubber vulcanization, fiber production, and detergent manufacturing.
When rubber is exposed to chlorsulphonic acid, the material can become brittle and may eventually crack and break down or disintegrate completely. The rubber can also swell, distort, and lose its shape, resulting in a decrease in material properties and strength. Additionally, the acid can cause the rubber to discolor and corrode.
