APO™ Plasticizer

APO™ Plasticizer is a process oil and additives mixture extracted from rubber during the devulcanization process that can be used as an extender oil equivalent and serves as a high-quality, economically-priced additive replacement for new rubber compounds.  In addition, APO™ comprises curatives, accelerators and other additives removed from the original compound, which can help reduce the cost of components necessary for a given compound formulation.

Benefits of APO™ Plasticizer

  • Cost: lower cost compared to standard extender oil; potentially additional cost savings from other additives (e.g., curatives, accelerators)
  • Performance: no reduction in physical properties with appropriate recipe adjustments
  • Production: integrates easily into existing compound process and equipment
  • Sustainability: increases recycle material content to help achieve sustainability goals
