  • 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.
