Ferric nitrate, also known as iron nitrate, is a chemical compound used in various industries including water treatment, chemical production, and agriculture. Common uses for ferric nitrate include water treatment, dye and pigment production, and the production of iron-based compounds.
When rubber is exposed to ferric nitrate, the rubber can become discolored and brittle over time. The rubber may also swell up, leading to cracking and eventual failure. In addition, prolonged exposure to ferric nitrate can cause the rubber to become porous, which will cause the rubber to become weaker and more susceptible to damage.
