Butyl Curing

POLYTONE® AP 113 and AP 113 A are heat reactive octylphenol-formaldehye resins that contains methylol groups. Its formulated for the cure system of Butyl (Isobutylele-Isoprene) rubber by resin curing system.

Compatibility with other elastomers is good due to the presence of octyl group and can be used to make cements with wide range of properties. It can also be used to formulate pressure sensitive adhesives, Inks and thermoplastic elastomers. The reactive methylol groups offers “functional sites” for various reactions like with rosin in printing inks.
