Nitrogen trifluoride, also known as NF3, is a colorless and odorless gas used in a variety of industries, from semiconductor production to propellant production. NF3 is also used in industrial processes such as welding, cutting and cleaning.
When exposed to rubber materials, nitrogen trifluoride can cause a variety of failures. Swelling, hardening, and cracking are all common types of failures that can occur when rubber is exposed to NF3. Additionally, NF3 can cause the rubber to become more brittle, reducing its durability and increasing the likelihood of leaks and other failures.
