Natural rubber is masticated to improve processing. By breaking down the molecular chain the polymer viscosity is reduced. This is usually achieved by mechanical forces in a mixer, which consumes energy. The higher the temperature, the faster the mastication. Renacit® mastication agents decrease the mastication time, and therefore the dump temperature, by a special chemical process. Hence, less power is consumed, mixer capacity is increased and costs are reduced. Renacit® is very efficient: only a very small amount is required.

Key Properties

- reduction of mastication times and dump temperature
- very efficient
- cost savings
