It functions as an emulsion plasticiser and lubricant. Acmetol 212 improves dispersion, prevents sticking of polymers to rolls and rotors and improves compound flow etc. It shortens the mixing time by faster filler incorporation and further reduces the risk of scorching, particularly in highly loaded compounds. Due to the good plasticising properties of Acmetol 212, the molds can be filled faster with lower pressures during injection and the help of transfer molding. Its effect on the vulcanization behavior is neutral and this applies also to peroxide cure systems as well. The recomended dosage is 2 phr.

ACMETOL 212 is a processing additive for rubber polymers which is normally used to improve the general compound processing without significant influence on the physical properties. It acts as a dispersing agent for powdered materials and can shorten the mixing time by faster filler incorporation. ACMETOL 212 prevents sticking of elastomers and compounds to rotors and rolls. The addition of ACMETOL 212 can reduce the risk of scorching, particularly in highly loaded compounds. Due to the good plasticizing properties of ACMETOL 212, molds can be filled faster with lower pressures during injection and transfer molding. Mold release is improved. The effect on the vulcanization behavior is neutral; this applies also to peroxide cure systems.
