Potassium Cupro Cyanide, also known as Potassium Cuprocyanide or Potassium Copper (II) Cyanide, is an inorganic compound that is used in a variety of industrial processes. Commonly used in gold-plating, electroplating, and as an ingredient in the production of alloys and chemical compounds, this chemical is also used in the food industry.
When exposed to rubber, Potassium Cupro Cyanide can cause a variety of types of failures. The most common type of failure is a chemical degradation of the rubber, which can lead to cracking, tearing, or discoloration. Additionally, this chemical can cause swelling or hardening of the rubber, which can lead to a decrease in flexibility and strength.
