Anchor Chemicals has established itself as a significant manufacturer and distributor of materials as well as offering technical support for the rubber and associated industries, providing Process Aids including AnchorLube and Factice.
We have process aids to facilitate the dispersion of fillers within rubber compounds and ensure smooth processing. They reduce energy consumption, as well as improving extrusion properties and surface appearance of moulded articles.
Factice is used as a non-thermoplastic processing aid in natural and synthetic rubbers. Factice controls the shrinkage or “nerve” of rubber mixes thus improving dimensional stability during handling, storage and open vulcanisation.
It improves filler dispersion, reduces mixing energy requirements and has the capacity to absorb large quantities of liquid plasticisers so facilitating their incorporation into soft compounds. We manufacture a range of dark Factice for use in the rubber processing industry.
