APO Plasticizer™ is an economically priced ‘reprocessed’ oil extracted from used tires during the devulcanization process that can be used as a process oil (plasticizer) substitute in new rubber compounds. As the oil also contains traces of rubber accelerators extracted from crumb rubber, using APO Plasticizer™ can also reduce the amount of new cure components in rubber formulations.
Benefits of APO Plasticizer™
- Cost: Lower cost than alternative process oils and plasticizers
- Further cost savings from reduced levels of curatives and accelerators
- Performance: No reduction in physical properties with appropriate recipe adjustments
- Sustainability: Increases the amount of recycled material in compounds to help achieve corporate sustainability goals
