Sagrotan is a brand name for saccharin solution, which is also known as sodium saccharin. It is a food additive and preservative that is used to enhance the sweetness and flavor of food, as well as to preserve it. It is also used in some toothpastes and mouthwashes.
Saccharin solution can have a damaging effect on rubber when exposed over time. This can cause the rubber to become brittle and degrade, leading to cracks and breaks. Additionally, it can cause the rubber to swell, losing its shape and becoming deformed. It can also lead to discoloration and a decrease in the elasticity of the rubber.
