DUSSELDORF, GERMANY: To meet the growing demand for rubber, Arlanxeo introduced a new nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) grade, Krynac XL 3375 VP.

Krynac XL 3375 VP, a new pre-crosslinked NBR, particularly made to deliver high-quality products with no compromise on production efficiency. It is especially suited for extruded and calendered parts requiring good dimensional stability, such as hoses inner parts, rubber linings, semi-finished products, belts.

Krynac XL 3375 VP is permitted for food contact applications (FDA and BfR). This makes Krynac XL preferably suited for the production of hoses to transport liquid as well as solid foodstuff like vegetable oil, milk, wine, beer, sugar, etc.

Other key processing benefits include good calendering behaviour, low shrinkage, smooth compound surface and higher compound green strength. Moreover, Krynac XL 3375 VP delivers reduced nerviness on the mill.

The pre-crosslinked structure of the new Krynac XL 3375 VP allows exceptional performance in terms of mechanical properties such as elongation at break and tensile strength as well as extremely low compression set values.

Krynac XL 3375 VP can be used either pure for best extrusion and calendering stability or blended with linear Perbunan or Krynac grades in order to increase gradually dimensional stability. Replacing 25 parts of linear grade with this pre-crosslinked NBR will already give excellent performance in processing.
