Construction Industry

LANXESS offers a whole range of innovative products for the construction industry.

Belts, Cables and Hoses

Baymod® N Baymod® N grades are part of the modifier range of technical rubber products. These powdered nitrile rubbers are compatible with a variety of different base polymers thanks to their chemical and physical property profile.
Baypren®Baypren® is a family of chloroprene rubber with diverse applications due to its attractive combination of key technical properties. It is the name of the LANXESS range of polymers based on 2-chloro-1,3-butadiene (chloroprene), which are manufactured by water-based emulsion polymerization in the presence of emulsifiers, activators etc.
Buna EP® Provided that the compounds are formulated and processed correctly, the vulcanizates have excellent resistance to weathering and ozone, good to very good aging resistance and low temperature flexibility, low electrical conductivity and satisfactory resistance to polar chemicals.
Levapren®Levapren® (EVM) is a specialty rubber, that can cope with the growing demands of the cable and construction industry as well as the automotive industry.
Levatherm®Provided that the compounds are correctly formulated and processed, the vulcanizates have outstanding resistance against hot air, hot oils, fuels, solvents and hydraulic oils in combination with very good mechanical properties.
Perbunan®Perbunan® is a fast curing NBR rubber. Used for the manufacture of oil resistant technical rubber articles with excellent cost/performance ratio.
Therban®Therban® is LANXESS high-performance specialty elastomer, specially designed for demanding applications requiring exceptional durability in aggressive environments. Therban performs well in extreme temperatures, fuel, oil, ozone, and abrasion.
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.
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.
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.
Vulkanol®Vulkanol®Vulkanox® 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.
Vulkalent®Vulkalent® retarders adjust the vulcanization rate and increase scorch and flow times of sulfur-cured diene rubber compounds.
Renacit®Natural rubber is masticated to improve processing. By breaking down the molecular chain the polymer viscosity is reduced.
Vulkazon®Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents and attacks most organic compounds.
