MLPC International, part of the Arkema group of companies and a long time producer of thiourea chemicals, is pleased to launch Mixland®+ SD as a replacement for Ethylene Thiourea (ETU).
ETU confers excellent cure characteristics and compression set to a number of elastomers, but most noticeably in (CR) chloroprene rubbers. Health & Safety issues have reduced the use of ETU, but existing alternatives have a number of deficiencies. Mixland®+ SD is based on a nitrosamine-free thiadiazole molecule, with a high sulphur content.
Main applications will be belting, cables, hose, profiles and seals. MLPC Intl have prepared a full technical report illustrating the chemistry, formulations and properties in a number of compounds. For full details please contact the sales office.
