ZEON Chemicals Releases Innovative Adhesives Brochure
ZEON CHEMICALS RELEASES INNOVATIVE ADHESIVES BROCHURE
Louisville, Ky. (Dec. 14, 2015) – ZEON Chemicals L.P, the leading producer of specialty elastomers in the United States, has released new literature: Nipol® Nitrile Rubber in Adhesives and Cements.
NBR is widely used in all types of oil resistant hose, belts, seals and molded goods applications. It also imparts property improvements as a phenolic, epoxy or PVC modifier in myriad nontraditional applications and adhesives. They include brake pads and friction products, aerospace adhesives and electronic circuit boards. With over 100 NBR grades, including liquids, powders, ground and baled products, ZEON’s Nipol NBR product line is the most diverse in the industry.
“While most adhesive producers have a large portfolio of custom solutions, we wanted to offer alternate suggestions and applications for NBR materials used not only as adhesives, but also to improve phenolic, epoxy and PVC formulations,” said Tom Hofer, NBR applications development scientist. “This brochure packs a ton of information, and will help our customers with not only the formulation itself, but in the processing of their products, as well. We are one of the few polymer manufacturers still offering technical service to both existing and potential customers.”
The brochure is available by registering and logging in at our web site, zeonchemicals.com.
