Brown Factise

Factice is vulcanized unsaturated vegetable or animal oil, used as a processing aid and property modifier in rubber. Longer chain fatty-acid containing oils such as rapeseed or meadow foam produce a harder, more desirable factice. Cross-Linking the fatty-acid chains with sulfur (brown factice) or S2Cl2 (white factice) yields a rubbery material that improves the processing characteristics and ozone resistance of rubber.

Product Description

Factice is vulcanized unsaturated vegetable or animal oil, used as a processing aid and property modifier in rubber.

Longer chain fatty-acid containing oils such as rapeseed or meadow foam produce a harder, more desirable factice.

Cross-Linking the fatty-acid chains with sulfur (brown factice) or S2Cl2 (white factice) yields a rubbery material that improves the processing characteristics and ozone resistance of rubber.[1] Varying the amount of factice changes the physical properties of the rubber; molded items might be 5-10% factice, extrusions 15-30%.

APPLICATIONS:

  • Rubber extrusion and molding product manufactures.
  • Tyre tubes
  • Pipeing
  • Profile strips
  • Rubber guards
