COLOGNE, Germany—Lanxess A.G. will showcase new masterbatches for manufacturing reinforced rubber parts at K 2019, which will be held Oct. 16-23 in Duesseldorf, Germany.
Lanxess said in a news release that pre-dispersed additives from the Rhenogran product series are easy to handle, dust free, simple to dose and exhibit strong processing properties.
Rhenogran P91-40/Q is suited to manufacture high temperature resistant, durable, wear-resistant silicone items like washers and seals. Lanxess said the silicone matrix and aromatic polyamides in the fibers form a matched pair, especially when exposed to high thermal stress.
Rhenogran P91-40/FKM can be used to manufacture products like high-performance rubber goods for aviation designed to withstand high operating temperatures, require strong chemical resistance and dynamic properties. Laxness said each of the new additives contains about 40 percent highly fibrillated pulp content.
Rhenogran CNT masterbatches are reinforcing additives for special applications that involve withstanding high mechanical stresses. Lanxess said they are designed to expand the range of water dispersed CNT latex additives and initially will only be available in relatively highly diluted states.
