How HYPERGEL BASE Works
BASE is an unique secondary gelling agent used to "sharpen up"
the gelling process. It causes the destabilization of the rubber particles
so that the gelling pH is increased, thereby ensuring an improved
structure. The gradual addition of the product to soap solution results in
turbidity and separation of an oil. This, in all likelihood, is the
mechanism responsible for improved gelling. The gel formed without the
addition of HYPERGEL BASE is pasty at lower pH, which becomes firm at
of HYPERGEL BASE
It is a gel sensitiser as well as an accelerator.
It therefore results in much better "Modulus" or hardness
of the product.
It is very easy to use. Unlike DPG, it need not be ball milled as
it can be diluted with water before use.
It is non-staining. It does not result in a dark coloured product
It is well known that at high ambient temperature locations there is the danger of overcure. The processing of low
M.S.T. lattices becomes very difficult. By using HYPERGEL BASE one can
easily control the cure and obtain a uniform product.
can be used for lattices of all kinds. Even low mechanical stability
lattices can be processed.
