Monsanto: rubber chemicals, instruments and equipment.

Rubber Chemicals, Instruments and Equipment

Monsanto Chemical Company, the world's largest producer of Rubber Chemicals, has a wide variety of valuable products for rubber industry needs. From multiple sources around the world, Monsanto offers customers the services of extensive sales, manufacturing, research, technical and customer support staffs, 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], Flectol [R] H, 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 modernized and expanded its hydrogenation facility in the Krummrich plant at Sauget, Illinois, its Flectol [R] facility at the Ruabon, Wales plant and its thiazole accelerator complex at Nitro, West Virginia. New investments in plants in other developing markets, such as Brazil, illustrate Monsanto's commitment to meet the growing needs of worldwide markets. Monsanto's fully-equipped laboratories at Akron, Ohio and Louvain-le-Neuve (Brussels), Belgium have a highly qualified research and development staff to satisfy the exacting technological demands of our customers. Monsanto's constant efforts to meet the needs of the rubber industry can be found in its ongoing product development programs. New products that are environmentally safe and provide high performance are in varying stages of development. DuraLink [R] HTS is a new product that was developed at the Belgian research laboratories. It is a post-vulcanization stabilizer that improves reversion resistance and steel cord adhesion. Santocure [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. Monsanto Rubber Instruments Group combines the resources of rubber chemistry experience and testing knowledge. This resource helps customers meet worldwide competition and increase the value of their businesses.
