In cable extrusion, as in hose extrusion, VESTENAMER® reduces mixing energy in the inner mixer during compounding. Because of the lower output temperature of the compound in cable extrusion, mixing steps are reduced.
VESTENAMER® also significantly improves the extrudate surface without impairing the physical and electrical properties of the vulcanizate. The double-bond content of the polyoctenamer may result in a marginal increase in the compression-set values, which can point to a lower polymerization density.
VESTENAMER® is compatible with all rubber types with saturated or unsaturated hydrocarbon chains.
