VESTENAMER® is a “multi-task” specialty with outstanding characteristics for the Rubber processing industry.
The trans-polyoctenamer rubber (TOR) which consists of linear and cyclic macromolecules is used in a broad range of applications such as:
- Drive and Conveyor Belts
- Wire & Cable
- Floor- and Roofing
- Molded and Foamed goods
- Shoe Soles
- Medical Stoppers
and finds more and more usage in the field of recycling of mechanical rubber powder.
As a process additive VESTENAMER® improves the flowability of the rubber compound, as a result of which the material can be processed much more efficiently. In profile extrusion VESTENAMER® functions as a processing aid to increase the stability of the raw profiles and to improve flowability, surface smoothness and dimensional stability.
