Titanium tetrachloride, also known as titanium chloride, is a colorless liquid that is used in a variety of chemical processes. It is often used in the production of titanium-based chemicals, such as titanium dioxide, and is also used in the production of pigments, smoke screens, and catalysts.
When exposed to titanium tetrachloride, rubber materials can suffer from discoloration, swelling, cracking, and oxidation. Additionally, titanium tetrachloride can cause rubber to become brittle and break apart due to a process known as hydrolysis. This occurs when the titanium tetrachloride reacts with the rubber, causing it to lose its strength and flexibility.
