Hexafil™ Cost-effective ultra-fine kaolin for superior mechanical properties and processability
- Superior modulus
- Excellent green strength
- Improved tear and abrasion resistance
- Enhanced processability
Hexafil™ is ultrafine, ball clay or hard kaolin. As a result of its finer particle size, Hexafil™ provides excellent compression set and abrasion resistance, making it a prized additive for shoe soles and rubber floor mats for example.
Hexafil™ is designed to improve the mechanical properties of EDPM, SBR and silicone used in a broad array of end applications. It is a suitable cost-effective solution where color is not of prime importance.
Used in rubber compounds, Hexafil™ improves:
- Tensile strength
- Tear resistance
- Abrasion resistance
- Green strength
- Cured stiffness
Hexafil™ is recommended for:
- Shoe soles
- Floor mats
- Automotive hoses
- Cable sheathing
- Hydraulic and industrial hoses
