Heptachlor is a persistent organic pollutant and is also referred to as Heptachlor epoxide, Heptachloride, Heptor, and Chlorobutane. It is an organochloride insecticide used in agricultural and residential settings, as well as in the production of rubber.
Exposure to Heptachlor can have significant damaging effects on rubber materials. Over time, the rubber can become brittle, discolored, and cracked due to the compound's ability to break down the rubber's molecular bonds. Additionally, Heptachlor can cause swelling and softening of rubber materials, which can cause them to lose their structural integrity and fail prematurely.
