1,3,5 – tri – 2 propenyl –1,3,5 triazine – 2,4,6 – trione
It is used as crosslinking agent ( co activator ) for peroxide or radiation crosslinking elastomers
TAIC cured vulcanisaes show improved :
- crosslinking density ( higher modulus , higher hardness )
- compression set ( very low compression set )
- lower compound viscosity
- better oil , fuel and chemical resistance
- heat resistance ( because of the triazine ring )
.TAIC has minimal effect on scorch compared to coagents like TMPTMA , ZDMA , HVA 2 .
TAIC enhances the electrical properties of elastomer .
TAIC improved also resistance to hydrolysis and weathering
