Product Overview
CELOGEN® ACTICELL® U is a non-dusting activator and accelerator for CELOGEN® chemical blowing agents. It lowers the decomposition temperature of CELOGEN® AZ and OT, allowing cellular materials to be manufactured at lower temperatures. When used at the normal decomposition temperature for CELOGEN® AZ and OT, ACTICELL® U shows higher productivity in natural and synthetic rubbers. CELOGEN® ACTICELL® U disperses easily and is relatively non-staining and non-discoloring.
