Thermax® application

Rubber

Easy mixing and good dispersion, excellent processing, smooth extrusion, excellent dynamic properties, low grit compounds, reduced compression set and low electrical conductivity are all part of the Thermax® advantage.

Thermax® Grade

N990

Thermax®

Thermax® N990 consists of uniform soft pellets which are easy to disperse in most applications, yet can withstand the rigours of transportation.
