3 NIPOL® IR vs. Natsyn® in a Furnace Black Loaded Compound Three NIPOL IR polymers of different viscosities were compared to Natsyn 2200 in a carbon black-loaded compound. The viscosities of the NIPOL IR polymers were slightly higher, while scorch and cure times for the NIPOL IR compounds were markedly slower, than those of Natsyn 2200.Press cures equated to tc 90 indicate that NIPOL IR 2200 has higher modulus and tensile strength. All three NIPOL IR polymers exhibited improved tear strength, compression set resistance and resistance to flex-crack growth.COMPOUNDSIngredients1234Natsyn® 2200100.0─NIPOL® IR 2200NIPOL IR 2200LNIPOL IR 2200NZinc Oxide3.0Stearic Acid2.0AGERITE® STALITE® Antioxidant1.0N330 Carbon Black40.0Calight RPO Plasticizer5.0AMAX® AcceleratorSulfurTotals154.0AMAX and AGERITE are registered trademarks of R.T.
