Phenyl Hydrazine, also known as phenylhydrazine hydrochloride, is a chemical compound used in the production of dyes, pharmaceuticals, and photographic materials. It is also used in the production of explosives, polymers, and rubber accelerators.
Common types of rubber failures when exposed to Phenyl Hydrazine can include swelling, cracking, and hardening. Swelling of rubber materials can occur due to the absorption of the Phenyl Hydrazine, which can cause the rubber to become soft and pliable. Cracking and hardening can occur due to the release of nitrogen, which can reduce the elasticity of the rubber. In extreme cases, the rubber can become brittle and break.
