Pentachlorodiphenyl (PCD) is an organochloride compound used as a fungicide, insecticide, and soil fumigant. It is widely used in agriculture and horticulture to control fungi and insects.
When rubber is exposed to PCD, the rubber may become brittle and crack. This is due to the fact that PCD can break down the rubber’s chemical bonds. Additionally, PCD can cause the rubber to swell, which can lead to further cracking and failure. It is important to take proper protective measures when using rubber in areas where PCD is present.
