Hexamethylene diammonium adipate, also known as hexamethylene diammonium salt of adipic acid, is a chemical compound used in a variety of industries. It is used as an intermediate in the production of polyurethanes and in synthetic rubber as a plasticizer. It is also used as an additive in coatings and inks.
When rubber is exposed to hexamethylene diammonium adipate, the rubber may become brittle and crack due to the chemical’s ability to break down the bonds between molecules. This can lead to cracking and eventual failure of the rubber material. Additionally, the chemical’s plasticizing effect can reduce the strength of the rubber and make it more susceptible to tearing or other types of damage.
