Fluorobenzene is also commonly referred to as benzene fluoride and is an organic compound that is used in the production of a variety of products, including pharmaceuticals, insecticides, and perfumes. Fluorobenzene is also used in organic synthesis and as a solvent in certain applications.
When rubber is exposed to fluorobenzene, the rubber may become brittle, leading to physical failure. The fluorobenzene can also break down the elastomeric polymeric chains, reducing the rubber's flexibility and strength. This can lead to a loss of elasticity, making the rubber unable to return to its original shape after being stretched. Additionally, repeated exposure to fluorobenzene can cause the rubber to degrade faster than normal.
