Chemical name: Hexamethylene-1,6-bis(thiosulfate), disodium salt, dihydrate Molecular weight: 390
Duralink™ HTS is used in sulfur based vulcanization systems to generate hybrid crosslinks which provide increased retention of physical and dynamic properties when exposed to anaerobic conditions at elevated temperatures such as those experienced during overcure, when using high curing temperatures or during product service life.
MAJOR APPLICATIONS AND PROPERTIES:
The use of Duralink™ HTS at 1-2 phr levels provides enhanced network stabilization upon thermal-oxidative aging in natural rubber, SBR and BR based elastomer or blend compounds. Thus, properties which depend upon network characteristics and dynamic mechanical properties including tear, fatigue, modulus, grip characteristics and rolling resistance are better maintained throughout the service life of the article. These benefits are apparent in conventional, semi-efficient and efficient vulcanization systems.
