Sulfur tetrafluoride, also known as sulfurofluoride, is a colorless gas that is used in the production of semiconductors, such as transistors and diodes. It is also used in numerous chemical reactions and as a refrigerant.
When rubber is exposed to sulfur tetrafluoride, it can cause several different types of failure. The gas can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack, leading to premature failure. Additionally, the gas can cause the rubber to swell and lose its original shape, leading to a decrease in performance. Additionally, exposure to sulfur tetrafluoride can cause rubber to become discolored, making it unappealing.
