Rubber Additives And Uses

- Mar 27, 2019-

Rubber additives originated from the vulcanization of natural rubber in the 19th century. Rubber auxiliaries are important auxiliary raw materials for the rubber industry. They are a general term for a series of fine chemical products that must be added in the process of rubber processing into rubber or latex products with excellent elasticity and performance. They include accelerators, antioxidants and vulcanizing agents. Hundreds of products, such as active agents, scorch inhibitors, processing aids and special functional additives, play an indispensable role in the rubber industry and are indispensable raw materials for the rubber industry.


Rubber auxiliaries play an important role in improving rubber processing technology and improving product quality. They are used to impart excellent elasticity and improve performance of rubber products, adjust the structure of rubber products, and improve rubber processing technology.

Rubber additives are widely used in the production of rubber products such as tires, hoses, tapes, rubber shoes, etc., which are mainly used in tire manufacturing. For example, our more common tires require rubber additives for vulcanization and anti-aging in production. The production of two main rubber additives, rubber vulcanization accelerator and anti-aging agent, is about 4% of the raw rubber consumption.
