PRODUCTION OF COUPLING GENERATOR
FOR MARINE VESSELS FROM BAKELITE MOULDING POWDER-FILLED ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE RUBBER

Background
     A coupling generator for marine vessels is an engineering rubber product that requires exceptionally high modulus and hardness. It is generally made from acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) reinforced with relatively high loading of carbon black (CB) resulting in high compound viscosity and, thus, processing difficulty. The application of Bakelite Molding Powder (BMP) in the production of the coupling generator significantly enhances the modulus and hardness of the product without an increase in compound viscosity, thus alleviating the processing problems.

Core Technologies
