Visitors at the ARLANXEO stand 6C78 are able to explore the company’s broad portfolio from linear to highly pre-crosslinked powder NBR products, produced by a grinding or spray drying process for use in various applications. These include gaskets, brake pads and especially PVC modification, where - in contrast to standard plasticizers - NBR powder acts as non-extractable plasticizer and increases an article’s shelf life.

PVC Modification


Luc Briquel, Technical Marketing NBR at ARLANXEO explains: “In PVC modification typically plasticizers based on phthalic acid esters like DOP are used to make these polymer blends softer. However, over time these liquid substances tend to migrate to the substrate surface, leading to shrinkage and hardening of the articles.” At K 2016, ARLANXEO focuses on its word-class NBR powder product Baymod NXL 3361 which offers improved color stability and extrusion properties compared to standard products.

Luc Briquel: “ARLANXEO is constantly investing in Research & Development in order to identify and develop new areas of application for NBR. With a total annual capacity of 130,000 metric tons of high-performance rubber, we are able to advance product performance to meet the needs of the market and develop tailored solutions for our customers’ business requirements.”

Baymod NXL 3361 is a product from the business line NBR/HNBR which is part of the business unit High Performance Elastomers.
