Over 250 companies from all over the world presented their products and innovations at the DKT this year. Among them Brüggemann with two new developments in the field of zinc-based activators for rubber vulcanization.
The use of the activator TP 1850 allows the replacement of zinc oxide in the vulcanization of both polar and non-polar rubbers. The adhesion promoter TP 1862 enables the replacement of cobalt and resorcinol in steel cord adhesive compounds.

Both new products are in the form of granules (masterbatch) and thus make it much easier to incorporate them into the rubber, which can be done more quickly and homogeneously.
The IRC science conference, which was taking place at the same time, also offered a wide range of lectures with 133 presentations and 36 posters on all topics relating to the rubber industry. With a poster contribution, Brüggemann underscored its ambitious plan to offer a new generation of tailor-made activators and additives for rubber vulcanization using reactive extrusion.
Brüggemann's presence at the DKT was very positively received, with more than 60 inquiries being received at the booth.
