Hydrite® SB60 Cost effective replacement and extender
Hydrite® SB60 hyper platy unique particle shape and chemical inertness results in improved processability,improved reinforcement and improved mechanical properties like, tensile strength, flexural strength, abrasion and tear strength, but also better electrical properties.
Kaolin can be a cost effective replacement/extender for more expensive or difficult to process synthetic components (i.e. ground silica,precipitated silica, fumed silica, carbon black). Kaolin also provides barrier properties which are beneficial when formulating compounds for hoses and gaskets, whereas the Hyper platy kaolins can be an added value filler in Inner Liner formulations.
Filler dispersion is also improved. Due to the reduced surface activity, Imerys functional kaolin clays give good reinforcement and permanent set properties, maintaining a very efficient compounding process.
Used in rubber compounds, Hydrite® SB60:
- Tensile strength
- Tear resistance
- Abrasion resistance
- Green strength
- Cured stiffness
- Low tan delta
- High volume resistivity
- Barrier and low permeability
- Low compression set
- Resistance to chemical attack and very low chemical reactivity
Hydrite® SB60 grade are recommended for:
- Cable sheathing and insulation
