What is Vulcanizing agent?

Sulphur is an abundant and versatile element on earth, so it is used in many industries such as rubber and tire industry. Sulfur is a very important element in rubber and tyre producing. Rubber makers sulfur adds strength and hardness to rubber when it is used in rubber compound. Oil-treated rubber makers sulphur is used by rubber and tire manufacturing companies to vulcanize rubber compounds.  Rubber Makers Sulfur is a critical additive in tire manufacturing and vulcanization process of rubber. Rubber makers sulphur products are different in formulation and size. We produce Rubber makers sulfur based on customer requirements and needs. In Alpinepolymer we are specialized in producing different types of Rubber makers sulfurs such as oil treated sulfur and micronized sulfur.

What is Vulcanization?

Vulcanization which earns its name from volcano is a step in producing rubber compounds and tire products. Vulcanization is a chemical process which converts polymers to stronger and more durable materials by adding crosslinks to them. The most famous use of vulcanization is use of rubber makers sulfur in rubber and tire industry. Natural rubber was being used in tire industry until 1839 before Charles Goodyear invented vulcanization process. Natural rubber wouldn’t work properly under harsh conditions and wasn’t durable enough. Rubber makers sulfur made tires stronger and more durable.


The science behind vulcanization

Vulcanizing agent is a material, usually sulfur, that is used in the chemical process of vulcanization. Vulcanization Agent (Rubber makers sulfur) gives natural rubber or other polymers more strength, elasticity and durability by the addition of sulfur or  other accelerators such as zinc oxide and peroxide. These additives add cross-links (bridges) to individual polymer chains to make them stronger and more durable.
