Crosslinking agents.

Vulcuren is said to be a novel crosslinking agent that solves the problem of over- or under-vulcanization and the associated losses in terms of service life and properties. With this accelerator, over-vulcanization and reversion can be avoided even at higher temperatures. The outcome is said to be more cost-effective production combined with excellent properties, according to the company. Vulcuren, a finely balanced mix of crosslinking agent and anti-reversion agent, not only enables the high-temperature vulcanization of thick-walled rubber articles, it also improves the service life and performance of rubber articles that have to withstand considerable dynamic loads under high operating temperatures, according to the company. Tires, engine mountings and thick-walled rubber articles are said to be typical examples. Tests are said to have shown improvements in cost-effectiveness of rubber production. (Lanxess)
