ChemSpec, Ltd. offers a variety of rubber accelerators from organic compounds. These compounds contain either Nitrogen, Sulfur, or sometimes both. The type of accelerator for an application depends on the elastomer that is being used and anticipated curing rates. Accelerators are used to increase the speed of vulcanization at lower temperatures with increased efficiencies. Accelerators can also help with aging properties because they reduce the amount of Sulfur needed for vulcanization.
