Alkylated Phenols play an important role in production of rubber because it does the following:
- Tackifying Resin
- Reinforcing Resin
- Curing Resin
- Bonding Resin
- Adhesive Resins
Alkylated phenols bond the strongest on the surface of Rubber Compounds. When comparing the bond strength of other tackifyng resins such as Hydrocarbon, alkylated phenols form the strongest hydrogen bonds with rubber. There is better tack retention, creates better performance in warm or humid conditions, and aids in the process of mixing.
Since alkylated phenols will not cross-link with the rubber, the following conditions will be improved:
- The abrasion resistance will improve
- Initial tear strength will increase because the rubber will be more stiff
- Toughness of rubber will increase along with a reduced residual compression set
- Higher heat, oil, and solvent resistance
With alkylated phenols, the cross linking is enhanced by the carbon-carbon which creates increased resistance to the following:
Alkylated phenols will give the following properties:
- High cross-link density
- Increased reactivity
- High modulus
- Good wire adhesion
- Near zero free resorcinol
- Excellent rubber-to- rubber knitting
The alkylated phenols can react will Magnesium oxide and provides resistance to high temperatures and improves contact with crystallinity.
