Novel Sustainable Accelerators for Latex Applications--Update
|Date Published||January 1, 2005|
An update of the concerns related to the use of conventional rubber accelerators in various latex applications will be made. Novel accelerators developed by Robinson Brothers Limited have been shown to produce effective vulcanization in both natural and synthetic lattices under a variety of production conditions while eliminating concerns associated with conventional dithiocarbamates and Thiurams. The paper will discuss the mechanisms of action of the novel accelerators.
