Kiapolymer has been the largest vulcanizing agent producer and supplier for the last 15 years in Iran. We produce best vulcanization agent (Rubber makers sulfur) and distribute them to all around the world.
The science behind vulcanization
Vulcanizing agent is a material, usually sulfur, that is used in the chemical process of vulcanization. Vulcanization Agent gives natural rubber or other polymers more strength, elasticity and durability by the addition of sulfur or other accelerators such as zinc oxide and peroxide. These additives add cross-links (bridges) to individual polymer chains to make them stronger and more durable.
Vulcanizing agent history
Natural rubber was being used in tire industry until 1839. Natural rubber had some problems, for example, it wasn’t durable enough and wouldn’t work properly under harsh conditions. Natural rubber becomes sticky or melts in high temperature and when it gets cold, it becomes brittle. IN 1839 Charles Goodyear, the founder of Goodyear tire company which is one of the first tire manufacturers in the world invented the vulcanizing agent to perform vulcanization process on rubbers. He actually named it Vulcanization after Vulcan, God of fire in Roman mythology. Sulfur is used in tires along other materials such as antiozonant wax to give more durability to it.
Rubber makers sulfur
Sulfur is a very important element in tire industry. Rubber Makers Sulfur is a critical additive in tire manufacturing and vulcanization process of rubber. Rubber makers sulfur products are different in formulation and size. We produce Rubber makers sulfur based on customer requirements and needs. In Kiapolymer we are specialized in producing different types of Rubber makers sulfurs such as oil treated sulfur and micronized sulfur.
