Our Altifil™ and Altiplus™ products can be used to create hoses, seals, cables, tires and other mechanical rubber goods, as well as improve processing, permeability, weathering, electrical properties, fire resistance and mechanical properties such as tear. As a high aspect ratio product, we can assist in all applications that require improved strength.
Generally speaking, the addition of a “platy” filler to rubber helps to reduce the viscosity of the rubber compounds which helps in the processing of molded parts and even tires. Altiplus™ can bring improvements in mechanical properties and assist with partitioning and barriers while acting as a processing aid.
Altifil™ and Altiplus™ applications include:
- Automotive parts
- Fire resistant wire and cable
- Industrial mechanical goods
