Global Rubber Processing Chemicals Market 2015-2019

About Rubber Processing Chemicals

Rubber is a polymer which is classified into two types, natural and synthetic. Natural rubber is extracted from latex, while synthetic rubber is manufactured through chemical processes. Rubber is processed using various chemicals to improve its resistance against heat, sunlight, oxidation, ozone and mechanical stress. Rubber processing chemicals are also integral to vulcanization process. These chemicals can be classified into different groups, based on functions, as follows:

  • Anti-degradants
  • Accelerators
  • Processing aids
  • Anti-scorch agents
  • Blowing agents
  • Polymerization regulators
  • Shortstops
