Hey, I am new to rubber engineering, was wondering if anyone has seen this type of failure of rubber before. The part is not mechanically overloaded and is made from natural rubber. I was thinking it possibly could be ozone cracking but not sure. I noticed between the cracks were small dots of white. Any help would be much appreciated.
