Product description

This product is designed for the rubber industry. Two grades are available: pdr; pdr-d. All grades are white to off white.</p> <p>Dimacit TMTD offers fast vulcanization and gives an excellent vulcanization plateau with good heat aging and compression set resistance when used in sulfurless vulcanization systems and EV systems.</p> <p>In EPDM Dimacit TMTD is a valuable secondary accelerator.</p> <p>In mercaptan modified polychloroprene cured with ETU, Dimacit TMTD acts as a scorch retarder without affecting the cure speed.</p> <p>Dimacit TMTD-pdr is recommended for use in soft compounds due to dispersability. <p>Dimacit TMTD is non-staining and non-discoloring. Excellent colors are obtained in non-black vulcanizates.</p> <p>It should be noted that in the application of Dimacit TMTD N-nitrosodimethylamine can be formed by the reaction of dimethylamine, a decomposition product, with nitrosating agents (nitrogen oxides).</p></br></br></br> <p>TMTD is regulated for use in articles with food as specified under FDA CFR 177.2600, 175.105 and under BfR recommendation XXI.</p>
