Therban® ART


Therban® Acrylate Reinforced Technology (ART) grades are masterbatches containing zinc diacrylate. Compounds with lower viscosity and improved scorch safety are produced by use of this masterbatch. Their vulcanizates exhibit superior heat aging, abrasion resistance and compound stiffness while escellent dynamic properties are maintained over a broad temperature range. Using Therban® ART compounds it is possible to achieve vulcanizates of up to 70 Shore D. These enhanced compound and vulcanizate characteristics achieved with the Therban® ART masterbatches have led to their application in synchronous and serpentine automotive drive belts and in hard rolls for the paper and steel industry.
