Mannheim – Rhein Chemie will be presenting its new predispersed products at the IRC in Nuremberg, Germany, from June 29 to July 2, 2009 (Stand 12-321).

Rhenogran® Lithium Carbonate 50/HNBR is a stabilizer for manufacturing high-temperature-resistant HNBR articles. Compared to conventional stabilizers containing sodium, this product significantly increases the service life of belts and seals, for example.

The new Rhenogran® AFP line expands the range of Rhenogran® fiber masterbatch products based on aramid fiber pulp. These ensure considerably longer operating times and increase the load-bearing capacity of, for example, high-quality timing belts, hoses and tires.
