MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENTS FOR A GREAT DRIVE DEVELOPMENT EXPERTISE

THE MIXTURE IS KEY

The “mixing room” has always been the heart of production at OPTIBELT. With the mixing of basic ingredients – and various additives – the basic properties of the end product are predetermined early in the production process. Their quality decides the quality of the end product. We therefore put great emphasis on buying top-class raw materials.

Thanks to the specific selection of additives and fillers, softeners and antioxidants, a decisive course is set very early in the production process for the later wear and noise behaviour or cold and heat resistance.

Kautschuk


RUBBER POLYMERS

The essential base for all OPTIBELT drive solutions. Its selection determines the temperature resistance, drive and noise behaviour of the end product.
  • Verbund-Katalysatoren

    BONDING CATALYSERS

    Resol influences the adhesion of the rubber mixture to other materials
  • Beschleuniger

    ACCELERATORS

    Control the integration speed of the vulcanisation
  • Weichmacher

    SOFTENERS

    Mineral oil-based and synthetic softeners determine cold resistance and noise behaviour
  • Vernetzungsstoff

    INTEGRATION SUBSTANCES

    Influence the dynamic, mechanical properties

  •  
  • Verarbeitungshilfsmittel

    PROCESSING AIDS

    Stearic acid is used for the reduction of cylinder adhesion
  • Füllstoffe

    FILLER MATERIAL

    Soot and fibres (particularly cotton, polyester) improve the transverse rigidity
  • Alterungsschutzmittel

    ANTIOXIDANTS

    Additives for the prevention of ageing effects and for the improvement of ozone resistance
