Isocrotyl chloride, also known as isobutyl chloride, is a colorless liquid with a pungent odor. It is used as a solvent in the production of pharmaceuticals and in the manufacture of dyes, pesticides, and plastics.
Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to isocrotyl chloride include cracking, hardening, embrittlement, swelling, and discoloration. Additionally, isocrotyl chloride can cause a decrease in the physical properties of rubber, such as tensile strength, elongation, and tear strength, as well as an unpleasant odor.
