Technology: NISSO advances epoxylated polybutadienes

Tokyo –  Nippon Soda (NISSO) is advancing the chemistry and materials science around its epoxylated polybutadienes, which allow the cross-linking reaction of 1,2-vinyl groups and the ring-opening reaction of epoxy groups

Applications include excipients in rubbers and resins and raw materials for adhesives, paints, and coatings, with NISSO also introducing new halogen rubber formulations for CSM rubber compounds.

Another focus is on providing new alternatives to the usage of acid acceptors based on lead monoxide, in the wake of amendments to REACH and RoHS chemical safety requirements.
