Peroxide Cure Additives

Dymalink® Metallic Coagents

Peroxide curing with Dymalink® metallic coagents significantly enhances the performance of a variety of elastomers. These easy-to-handle, 100% reactive solids yield strong rubber-to-metal bonds and other highly desirable performance advantages, including:

  • Greatly improved heat aging
  • High tensile strength
  • High tear strength
  • Higher modulus
  • Higher hardness
  • Increased abrasion resistance
  • Improved resilience
  • Very high rubber-to-metal adhesion

Ricon® High Vinyl Coagents

Ricon® high vinyl liquid poly butadienes act as Type II Coagents – affecting the state of cure, but not the rate of cure – in peroxide-cure systems. Ricon coagents are particularly effective in lightly unsaturated rubber systems (EPDM, for example). Utilizing Ricon coagents improve:

  • Compression Set
  • Modulus
  • Fuel Resistance
  • Heat resistance
  • Ozone Resistance
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Elongation
  • Oil Resistance
  • Processability
  • Moisture Resistance
