  • Patent number: 8841370
    Abstract: A rubber compound based on propylene-oxide rubber SKPO, including sulfur, stearic acid, zinc oxide, thiuram disulphide, carbon black P-803. The compound is characterized by replacement of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (kaptax), as well as fluoroplastic F-4, with dibenzothiazyl disulfide (altax), phenyl-?-naphthylamine (neozone D), dibutoxyethyl adipate, and ultrafine polytetrafluoroethylene (UPTFE). Such replacement of ingredients allows for significant improvement of wear resistance, frost resistance, and relative elongation. Additionally, relatively less UPTFE (compared to fluoroplastic F-4) can be used to achieve similar beneficial results, significantly reducing the cost of manufacturing the material.

    Abstract: A rubber compound based on propylene-oxide rubber SKPO, including sulfur, stearic acid, zinc oxide, thiuram disulphide, carbon black P-803. The compound is characterized by replacement of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (kaptax), as well as fluoroplastic F-4, with dibenzothiazyl disulfide (altax), phenyl-?-naphthylamine (neozone D), dibutoxyethyl adipate, and natural bentonites. Use of a rubber compound with the proposed composition increases the service life of rubber seals during their operation in sealing devices, due to higher frost resistance and a lower residual compressive strain value. Also, the compound can be manufactured by a simpler method compared to modern production technology, eliminating the stage of joint mechanical activation of zeolite and dibutyl phthalate.
