Monsanto: rubber chemicals, instruments and equipment.

The Chemical Group of Monsanto, the world's largest producer of Rubber Chemicals, provides a wide variety of valuable products to meet rubber industry needs. From multiple sources around the world, Monsanto offers customers high quality products produced at state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. Additionally, customers of Monsanto utilize extensive technical service and sales support groups. These support groups are staffed with knowledgeable, experienced people who are dedicated to meeting the needs of the rubber industry today and in the future.

Monsanto's Rubber Chemical products include:

* Accelerators - Bearing trade names such as Santocure[R],

Santocure[R] NS, Thiofide[R], Thiotax[R], Vocol[R] and DPG.

* Antioxidants - Including Flectol[R], Santowhite[R]

Powder and Santovar[R] A.

* Antiozonants - Santoflex[R] 13, Santoflex[R] 77 and

Santoflex[R] IP.

* Stabilizers - Which protect synthetic rubber from oxygen,

heat and light degradation during their production such as

Santoflex[R] 134.

* Specialty Rubber Chemicals - Such as Santogard[R] PVI,

a prevulcanization inhibitor and Sulfasan[R] R, a

vulcanizing agent.

Monsanto's commitment to the rubber industry is evidenced in its capital investment in plants and support facilities. Monsanto has recently modernized and expanded its hydrogenation facility in Sauget, Illinois, its Flectol[R] facility in Ruabon, Wales, and its thiazole accelerator complex in Nitro, West Virginia. These investments and our multi-million dollar investments in environmental capital, illustrate Monsanto's commitment to meet the growing needs of worldwide markets.

Monsanto's fully-equipped analytical and rubber compounding laboratories in Akron, Ohio, and Louvain-la-Neuve (Brussels), Belgium, have a highly qualified research and development staff to satisfy the exacting technological demands of our customers.

Monsanto's ongoing efforts to meet the needs of the rubber industry can be found in its product development programs. New products that help users respond to environmental concerns and provide high performance are in varying stages of development. Duralink[R] HTS is a new product that was developed at the Belgian research laboratory. It is a post-vulcanization stabilizer that improves reversion resistance and steel cord adhesion. Sanctocure[R] TBSI is a newly commercialized accelerator from the Akron Research Center that acts like a secondary amine-derived product but is produced from a primary amine, avoiding the generation of stable nitrosamines.
