Thioacetic Acid (TAA) for polymer and rubber

Product
TAA for polymer and rubber

Thioacetic Acid (TAA) in polymer and rubber applications can be used either as chain transfer agent or as sulfur donor for preparation of thio compounds.

 

The second application is mainly for the preparation of additive in tire industry.

 

Thioacetic Acid (TAA) is a low molecular weight mercaptan compound. For tire additives derivatives, thioacetic acid (TAA) is a reactive and selective mercaptan group donor.
