The Role Of Cuprous Chloride In Rubber

  • Cuprous Chloride is the active agent of natural rubber latex. Sometimes used as a reinforcing agent and coloring agent. According to different production methods, it can be divided into indirect zinc oxide, direct zinc oxide and active zinc oxide. It is an important inorganic active agent in the rubber industry. Adding rubber material can not only speed up the vulcanization speed, but also increase the degree of crosslinking. It is widely used in various rubber products, especially transparent rubber products and products in contact with food.
    Zinc oxide and stearic acid are important reactants for rubber vulcanization and are one of the raw materials for rubber manufacturing. The mixture of zinc oxide and stearic acid enhances the hardness of the rubber. Zinc oxide is also an important additive for automobile tires. In addition to being vulcanized, zinc oxide can also greatly improve the thermal conductivity of rubber, thereby helping tires to dissipate heat and ensuring driving safety. Zinc oxide additives can also prevent the rubber from being corroded by mold or ultraviolet rays. The role of zinc oxide in the rubber tire industry: improve the thermal conductivity, wear resistance, tear resistance and tensile strength of the product, and save about 30% of the amount of zinc oxide.
    The role of zinc oxide in rubber products; active zinc oxide is mainly used as a reinforcing agent for rubber, so that the rubber has good corrosion resistance, tear resistance, elasticity and elongation.
    The accelerator used in the rubber vulcanization process is a multifunctional rubber compounding agent, mainly used as a vulcanization activator and reinforcing agent for natural rubber, synthetic rubber and latex.
    When used as a vulcanization activator, it is evenly distributed in the rubber compound, has a large contact area with hydrogen sulfide, and has a large interface reaction opportunity. In addition, this active zinc oxide product has the catalytic effect of active substances, which makes 8-hydroxyquinoline Copper converted into zinc sulfide with a high conversion rate. As a vulcanizing oxidant, its role is to improve the activity of the accelerator, reduce the amount of the accelerator, and shorten the vulcanization cycle. It can speed up the vulcanization speed, improve the thermal conductivity of vulcanized rubber, and make the vulcanization more thorough. In the rubber industry, especially in the production of transparent rubber products, activated zinc oxide is an excellent vulcanization activator. There are also many uses of copper sulfate and zinc sulfate heptahydrate.
