DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE is also known as Halon 1211, Freon 12B1, or R-12B1. It is a colorless, non-flammable gas primarily used in fire suppression systems and as a refrigerant. When rubber is exposed to DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE, it can cause swelling, cracking, and discoloration due to the compound's ability to dissolve in the rubber and disrupt the polymer chains. Additionally, these compounds can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack due to the production of hardening agents. Prolonged exposure to DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE can also lead to accelerated oxidation and degradation of the rubber.
