LANXESS offers a whole range of innovative products that are used in the automotive industry.

Automotive compounds

Vulkacit® Vulkacit® Vulcanization is the conversion of a high-molecular material from the plastic to the elastic state. One of the key chemical reactions in this process is that of rubber with sulfur. Sulfur vulcanization, widely used in the rubber industry, requires the use of vulcanization accelerators such as Vulkacit®.
Vulkanox®Vulkanox® Aging processes, which are caused by oxygen or heat, change the properties of the vulcanizates.
Vulkanol®Vulkanol® synthetic plasticizers are required as active ingredients to adjust the properties of vulcanizates, for example, to reduce hardness, modulus and tensile strength or to increase ultimate elongation and resilience.
Vulcuren® Vulcuren® is a new crosslinker for the production of highly reversion-stable vulcanisates of NR, IR, SBR and BR and their blends.
Vulkazon®Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents and attacks most organic compounds. This includes elastomeric materials where the service life and product quality can be affected by relatively low ozone concentrations. 
Vulkalent®Vulkalent® retarders adjust the vulcanization rate and increase scorch and flow times of sulfur-cured diene rubber compounds.
Zinkoxyd AktivLANXESS zinc oxides are precipitated to offer a rather small range of particle size combined with a high surface area. On top these products are characterized by a very low heavy metal content.
Durethan®Durethan® is the trade name for our range of engineering thermoplastics based on polyamide 6 and polyamide 66.

Renacit®Natural rubber is masticated to improve processing. By breaking down the molecular chain the polymer viscosity is reduced.
Vulkalent® Vulkalent® retarders adjust the vulcanization rate and increase scorch and flow times of sulfur-cured diene rubber compounds.

Sinlica AdditiveSilica as filler in rubber compounds has become more and more important in rubber compounding especially in tyre application to reduce rolling resistance, but processing of silica compounds is problematic due to the higher compound viscosity in comparison to carbon black filled compounds.
Cohedur®Cohedur® bonding agents promote adhesion between elastic rubber and inelastic-but-durable material such as reinforcing carcasses or steel cords, which are combined to make long-lasting tires, conveyor belts, hoses, rubberized fabrics, containers, etc.
