Low Vinyl Homopolymers

Ricon 130

A low molecular weight homopolymer of polybutadiene The liquid polymer is suitable for use in peroxide and sulfur-cured elastomers where it acts as a non-extractable plasticizer.

 •  Non-extractable process aid
 •  Excellent hydrophobicity
 •  Enhanced winter traction of tires
 •  Abrasion resistance

Ricon 130MA8

Ricon® 130 CF MA8 is a low molecular weight, low vinyl butadiene functionalized with maleic anhydride, allowing enhanced adhesion of rubber compounds to metal and textiles. Ricon® 130 MA8 can act as a reactive compatibilizer in thermoplastics. The anhydride functionality can react with epoxy, amine, and hydroxyl groups, enabling the creation of unique adhesives, sealants, encapsulants, and coatings.

Ricon 131

Similar to the Ricon 130 but an economical replacement when higher viscosity is acceptable.

• Low Tg
• Low viscosity liquid polymer
• Plasticizing resin
• Low temperature flexibility


    Ricon 131MA5

    Ricon® 131 MA5 is a low molecular weight, low vinyl butadiene functionalized with maleic anhydride, allowing enhanced adhesion of rubber compounds to metal and textiles. Ricon® 131 MA5 can act as a reactive compatibilizer in thermoplastics. The anhydride functionality can react with epoxy, amine, and hydroxyl groups, enabling the creation of unique adhesives, sealants, encapsulants, and coatings.

    Ricon 134

    Similar to Ricon 130 & Ricon 131 but allows even higher viscosity.

    • Non-extractable process aid
    • Excellent hydrophobicity
    • Enhanced winter traction of tires
    • Abrasion resistance

    Ricon 1731 (Ricobond 1731HS)

    Ricobond® 1731 is a low molecular weight, low vinyl butadiene functionalized with maleic anhydride, allowing enhanced adhesion of rubber compounds to metal and textiles. The anhydride functionality can react with epoxy, amine, and hydroxyl groups, enabling the creation of unique adhesives, sealants, encapsulants, and coatings.
