Vulkanol®

Vulkanol® synthetic plasticizers are required as active ingredients to adjust the properties of vulcanizates, for example, to reduce hardness, modulus and tensile strength or to increase ultimate elongation and resilience.

Certain grades contribute to special properties such as improved low temperature flexibility or enhanced green tack of compounds. As a processing aid, plasticizers reduce compound viscosity and improve flow during processing, which results in lower processing temperatures and power consumption.
