Naphthalene chloride, also known as naphthalene dichloride, is a chemical compound used in many industries in a variety of applications. It is used in the production of dyes, paints, pesticides, and plasticizers. It is also used as a solvent in the production of a wide range of products, including pharmaceuticals, rubber, and resins.
When rubber is exposed to naphthalene chloride, there can be a number of different types of failure. The most common type of failure is the degradation of the rubber due to the chemical reaction between the rubber and the naphthalene chloride. This can cause the rubber to become brittle, reduce its flexibility, and ultimately lead to cracking and tearing. Additionally, naphthalene chloride can cause a chemical reaction that can cause the rubber to swell and become sticky, making it difficult to use in certain applications.
