Nickel nitrate, also known as nickel (II) nitrate, nitro nickel, and Nickeline, is a chemical compound that is used in a variety of industries. It is used in electroplating, in the production of jewelry, and in the processing of photographic films. In addition, it is used as an oxidizing agent in the production of some inorganic compounds.
When rubber is exposed to nickel nitrate, it can cause the rubber to become brittle and hardened. This can lead to a decrease in flexibility, an increase in the risk of cracking and splitting, and an overall decrease in the lifespan of the rubber. Additionally, nickel nitrate exposure can cause an increase in the permeability of the rubber, which can lead to a reduction in the material's ability to protect against water, air, and other liquids.
