DIBROMOETHYLBENZENE is also known as 1,2-dibromoethane benzene or DEB. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet odor and is used as a solvent, fuel additive, and a degreasing agent. When rubber is exposed to DIBROMOETHYLBENZENE, it can cause swelling, cracking, and embrittlement 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 DIBROMOETHYLBENZENE can also lead to accelerated oxidation and degradation of the rubber.
