Toluene diisocyanate, also known as TDI, is an organic compound used in the production of polyurethane plastics, rubbers, and coatings. TDI is commonly used in the automotive, furniture, and construction industries.
When exposed to TDI, rubber materials can experience swelling, cracking, and hardening. This is due to the TDI's ability to penetrate the rubber, causing it to lose its flexibility and elasticity. In addition, TDI can cause the rubber to become brittle and break apart, leading to premature failure. In addition, prolonged exposure to TDI can cause rubber seals to become brittle and crack, resulting in leaks.
