Supplied by MLPC International, Vultac® and Rosinox® are low molecular weight alkyl phenol disulfide oligomers that contain between 20-32% of sulfur.

Their benefits include:

  • In rubbers, Vultac® cure combines the advantages of thermal stability, thus better reversion and heat ageing resistance, and a relative long hybrid cross-link, providing better molecular flexibility and improved mechanical and dynamic properties
  • The phenolic structure can act as an antioxidant
  • High elastomer solubility
  • Nitrosamine-free
  • Non-staining and non-blooming
  • Tackifier enhancing adhesion
  • Bleaching agent and catalyst for Rosinox®. FDA approved (FDA 21 CFR 175.105.) as an antioxidant/stabilizer in the treatment of rosins and esters.
