LANXESS Corporation Releases New HNBR Option for High-Performance Soft Printing Roll Covers
THERBAN® C 3669 VP is an alternative to NBR rollers when uncompromising performance is required
PITTSBURGH - April 16, 2008 - LANXESS Corporation is providing a high-performance soft printing roll cover option with its latest grade of THERBAN® hydrogenated acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymer (HNBR), THERBAN® C 3669 VP (36% ACN; 6% RDB; 95 Mooney viscosity).
THERBAN® C 3669 VP offers the best upgrade choice to the well-established acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymers (NBR) in the fabrication of rubber roll coverings used in extreme environments. When longer service life is required for reducing cost-intensive downtime and associated replacement costs of NBR roll covers, HNBR polymers provide an ideal solution.
"THERBAN® C 3669 VP allows for the development of a compound formulation with a high acceptance of plasticizer, a typical requirement for cost-effective soft roll covers," says Nowshir Bilimoria, Business Development Manager for LANXESS Technical Rubber Products. "This new THERBAN® grade also contributes to a more symmetrical shape during roll cover fabrication, compared to standard HNBR grades, meaning less material has to be grinded to get a smooth symmetric cylindrical shape of the roll cover."
The LANXESS Technical Rubber Product group will showcase the new THERBAN® C 3669 VP product at the Rubber Roll Group Convention in Southlake, TX, on May 4th.
