TRIMENE™ BASE

High temperature rubber accelerator and latex foam stabilizer. It prevents compounds from sagging in the early stages of air curing.
Product Overview
TRIMENE™ BASE curing agent is a high temperature rubber accelerator with a medium to long curing range. When used as a latex foam stabilizer, it prevents foam collapse by causing gelling to occur at a higher pH.
