CELOGEN® OT

Outstanding chemical foaming agent with a relatively low decomposition temperature for producing cellular rubber and expanded plastic. Similar to CELOGEN® OB, but it has been oil treated to reduce dusting.
Product Overview
CELOGEN® OT is a chemical foaming agent that produces a fine, uniform, closed cell structure. It has a relatively low decomposition temperature and small particle size.

CELOGEN® OT can be catalyzed by a variety of chemicals. Very strong activators include ACTICELL® U, triethanolamine, and peroxides. Calcium oxide, calcium stearate, stearic acid, cadmium and lead type vinyl stabilizers are all moderate activators. Adipic acid, benzoic acid, salicylic acid, citric acid, lead stearate and zinc stearate are examples of weak activators.
