STANNOUS CHLORIDE, also known as tin(II) chloride, is a white crystalline solid that is most commonly used as a catalyst in chemical reactions and as a reducing agent. Common types of failures when rubber is exposed to STANNOUS CHLORIDE include cracking, hardening, and brittleness. The rubber can also become discolored and swell when exposed to the chemical, leading to a loss of flexibility and strength. Additionally, STANNOUS CHLORIDE can cause the rubber to become brittle and prone to tearing. Furthermore, the higher concentration of STANNOUS CHLORIDE increases the chances of rubber failure and can cause a much faster degradation of the rubber material.
