Frequently Asked Questions

A.

Innovoh is used in bisphenol cured FKM fluoroelastomers. It is not used in peroxide cured systems.. Please contact us for recommendations regarding your proposed use.

A.

Addition level will depend on the moisture levels within the compound. In practice, typical dose rate for Innovoh would be around 5 phr. If you would like advice on addition levels, please contact us.

A.

Typically, Innovox is added at the start of the mixing process. For high humidity environments, moisture may often be absorbed if compound is stored and so Innovox can be added near the final mix to overcome this. If you would like advice on addition point please contact us.

A.

Innovox is usually supplied in weight defined EVA low melt sachets, e.g. 1kg. These are ideal for use with a Banbury type mixer. For open mill mixers, Innovox can be supplied as a powder or as Innovox MG MicroGranules. If you would like advice on product choice please contact us.
