Specialty Ricons

Ricon 300

Ricon® 300 is a low molecular weight, liquid polybutadiene resin. This resin is suitable for use in peroxide and sulfur-cured elastomers where it acts as a non-extractable plasticizer and process aid.

● Non-extractable process aid
● Electrical insulator
● Excellent dielectric properties
● Excellent hydrophobicity
● Low temperature flexibility
● Enhanced winter traction of tires
● Abrasion resistance
● High tear strength

Ricon 330

Ricon® 330 is an aromatic polymer, available in pastille form.

● Solid polymer at room temperature
● Low viscosity above softening point
● High Tg
● Hydrophobic material
● Good miscibility in natural rubber, SBR, and elastomers
● Soluble in most solvents
● Rheological modifier
● Plasticizer
● Processing aid
● Modifier of thermodymamic properties

Ricon 340

Ricon® 340 is a hydrogenated, bio-based hydroxyl terminated, liquid polyfarnesene resin.  

● Low viscosity
● Low surface energy
● Electrical insulative properties
● Water-resistant
● Excellent substrate wetting
