Naphthalonic Acid is commonly referred to as Naphthoic Acid and is used in the production of dyes, perfumes, and plastics. It is also used in the production of rubber products such as seals and hoses.
When rubber is exposed to Naphthoic Acid, it can cause several types of failure. The rubber can become brittle, leading to cracking and tearing. The rubber can also become swollen and soft, leading to decreased strength and flexibility. The rubber can also become discolored and lose its elasticity. In addition, the rubber can become more prone to chemical attack due to the Naphthoic Acid breaking down the rubber’s molecular structure.
