SHOW NEWS: Evonik to present advanced process additive

LinkedIn +

At Tire Technology Expo 2017 Evonik will highlight its new process additive, Vestenamer, for efficient tire production, which simplifies the mixing and production of various tire compounds. It also improves dispersion of difficult polymer mixtures and reduces the viscosity of the compound while ensuring that the dynamic properties of the vulcanizate are unaffected or improved in some cases.

As a dispersion aid, Vestenamer can greatly shorten mixing cycles and at the same time optimize batch consistency in production. As a result the number of mixing steps in the process can be reduced and the process more efficiently designed.

Vestenamer also improves the processability of the rubber compound by reducing the viscosity at the mixing temperature and so preventing ‘bagging’ at the rolling mill.

Find out more about the benefits of this innovative new process aid at Tire Technology Expo 2017.
