The Lincol range of special plasticizers are primarily used for rubbers including ACM, AEM, CR, BR, SBR and EPDM. The Lincol products perform well at both high and low temperatures and also improve the compression set. The processing aids for rubber compounding, sold under the Polyplastol brand, have a wide range of features and benefits. The products improve flow characteristics and release effects as well as facilitating extrusion, calendaring and injection moulding. They can also be used for enhancing the surface finish of rubber articles.
“The cooperation with Eigenmann & Veronelli will strengthen our unique position in the plasticizer market even further. The Lincol and Polyplastol products are widely recognized and show an outstanding performance. The extended range of products enables us to offer our customers even more individual solutions,” says Patrick Hus, Product Manager, Krahn Chemie Deutschland.
Krahn will using the upcoming trade fair K 2019 (Hall 8b, Stand A61) to discuss the new products with customers alongside their existing comprehensive portfolio of products for rubber applications.
