Rubber Chemicals are the additives used in rubber processing. As these chemicals play an important role in making the rubber worthy of industrial use, it is vital to make a choice of proper chemicals. These chemicals include Precepitate Silica, Zinc Oxide, Carbon Black, Mica Powder, Silicon Emulsion, Calcium Carbonate, Graphite Powder, Magnesium Oxide, Sulphur, Aluminium Silicate, Blowing agents and many more.

Some of these chemicals are discussed below-

Zinc Oxide

Zinc Oxide is a white powder and it is an inorganic compound which is insoluble in water. It is used in numerous products and materials as an additive including ceramics, plastics, glass, lubricants, rubber, cement, paints, adhesives, ointments, sealants, batteries, foods, fire retardants, ferrites and first aid tapes. It is produced synthetically and also occurs in zincite mineral naturally. In the rubber industry zinc oxide is between 50 and 60 percent. In vulcanizing rubber zinc oxide is used with stearic acid. Zinc oxide protects rubber from UV light and fungi. Zinc oxide consists of antibacterial and deodorizing fine particles which are added to rubber, cotton fabric and food packaging.

Precepitate Silica

Precepitate Silica is produced by precipitation which is also silica. It is formed from the reaction of mineral acid with alkaline silicate solution. Sodium silicate and sulphuric acid solutions are simultaneously added to water with agitation. Under alkaline conditions precipitation is carried. It is used to improve performance and as softener and filler in plastics and rubber.

Mica Powder

The sheet silicate minerals with nearly perfect basal cleavage are included in the mica group. These silicate minerals have similar chemical composition which have pseudo hexagonal crystals and are monoclinic. Mica has perfect cleavage that is demonstrated by its arrangement of atoms which is in a sheet like hexagonal shape. Mica powder is used in the rubber industry as a mold release compound and as inert filler which is utilized in the fabricating processes of molded rubber products like roofing and tyres. The platy structure of rubber acts as anti sticking and anti blocking agent. Mica is used as a rubber additive which improves resiliency and gas permeation.

Aluminium Silicate

The chemical compounds that are obtained from aluminium oxide are known as aluminium silicate. Aluminium silicate dehydrate is a white powder that is present in the mineral kaolinite which occurs naturally. This fine white powder is used in rubber and paper as a filler material and also utilized in paints.

Graphite Powder

An allotrope of carbon is graphite which is utilized in radar absorbent materials. Graphite powder is mixed with rubber to decrease the radar cross section of U boat snorkels and also in some aircraft tiles.

All types of Rubber Chemicals are available online. Persons or organizations interested in these chemicals can browse the official websites of the manufacturers to directly avail from them at industry leading rates.

Author's Resource Box

One can easily purchase these chemicals from distributors, dealers or through Internet. There are several online portals from where one can get information about wide array of rubber chemicals. Know more about Rubber Chemicals Manufacturing Companies | Natural Rubber Producers here.
