APO Plasticizer™

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
