These elastomers also have the elasticity of rubber, which allows them to be used as a substitute for vulcanized rubber and flexible polyvinyl chloride. These resins are said to be easily compounded with polypropylene, process oil and other ingredients, or they can be dynamically crosslinked in the compounding process, according to the company.
Newly registered by the EPA are two OBPA-based biocides on solid PVC (polyvinyl chloride) carriers: Intercide ABF-5 SV, 5% OBPA in a polyvinyl chloride homopolymer; and Intercide ABF-5 SVC, 5% OBPA in a polyvinyl chloride/polyvinyl acetate copolymer.
