RUBBER NANO PROPERTIES & BENEFITS

RNP’s additives excel at applications that use a sulfur based cure in diene rubbers.

 

Our products are generally composed of a nano-composite with an inert core of Silica embedded in a tailored binding medium to ensure maximum ease of use, safety and incorporation into a rubber matrix upon mixing.

 

These unique products deliver a pronounced effect on the curing reaction; delivering improvements to the cure kinetics and physical properties. This is achieved through the formation of differing types and lengths of sulfur cross-links when compared to a conventional zinc based cure.

 

The products are at home in a range of different accelerator classes like sulfenamides and nitrosamine free dithiocarbamates.

The Rubber Nano Vision of polymer curing facilitates a new way of looking at a rubber system; it provides unique tools to achieve previously unattainable cost savings while maintaining and in many cases actually improving the quality of the final rubber product. The dedicated RNP development team are passionate about taking industries through this learning curve and helping them achieve the optimal rubber systems they require.
