Butyl Rubber Curative - SUPRA - NG 3001
SUPRA-NG 3001 is a heat reactive modified phenolic resin based on alkyl phenol. This has been designed specially for curing of butyl rubber. This has excellent compatibility with natural, nitrile and neoprene rubber because of its alkyl substitution.
SUPRA-NG 3001 lowers the money viscosity of butyl bladder compounds, thereby improving the processability. This grade also extends scorch time enabling longer working time with the compound. Incorporation of this resin in butyl bladder compounds improves the mechanical properties such as tensile and tear strength, hardness, modulus and elongation at break. More important, the mechanical properties of the butyl compounds are retained after heat ageing under the conditions of moulding of automobile tyres. Because of retention of mechanical properties, service life of the butyl bladders is considerably extended.
This resin can also be compounded with natural, nitrile and neoprene rubbers in formulations of pressure sensitive adhesives to improve the tack and electrical properties of the adhesive. This also prevents the migration of plasticiser from the PVC base film to the adhesive layer, thus acting as an anchor between the base film and the adhesive layer.
phr of this resin is recommended for use in the butyl compound. In pressure sensitive adhesive formulations, 15 to 20 phr of resin is recommended. However, the optimum proportion of the resin in the rubber compounds will depend on the compounding formula and will have to be arrived at by trial and error.
