Mineral water is also known as spring water and natural mineral water. It is most commonly used as a refreshing beverage and for medicinal purposes.
When rubber is exposed to mineral water, it can become swollen and softened, resulting in a decrease in its tensile strength. This can lead to cracking, tearing, and other forms of physical damage. Additionally, the mineral content in the water can cause the rubber to degrade over time, making it more prone to failure.
