    Koresin®

      BASF produces Koresin® at its Ludwigshafen plant. The production facility is linked to a pelletizing and packaging line that packs the pellets in 25-kilogram bags and bulk bags.

      Koresin® production and filling operations have been certified in keeping with ISO 9001:2000.

      Our customers may order Koresin for delivery on plastic pallets. The carriers made of recycled plastics have been introduced in response to changes in customer demand: BASF uses the plastic pallets to meet the quality and reliability requirements of the tire and rubber industries.

    Outstanding Advantages
    high and long-term tackiness of rubber compounds made from natural or synthetic rubbers
    no effect on rubber vulcanization process
    physical characteristics of the vulcanized rubber remain nearly unchanged
    improved rubber extrudability and improved resistance of rubber goods to ageing caused by exposure to heat and dynamic load
    better dispersion of carbon black
    process reliability and unparalleled performance

      Technical Information

      Trust in Superior Tackiness

      The tackiness curves of various tackifiers identify Koresin® as the superior short- and long-term tackifier. Similar results have been observed e.g. for steel cord (100% NR) and side wall compounds (NR:BR:EPDM 35:35:30).

      Koresin® customers round the world have for years confirmed the superior tackiness performance in all kinds of tires and rubber articles.

      Influence on Vulcanization

      Another major advantage of Koresin® compared to other tackifiers: Koresin® has hardly any impact on the vulcanization behavior of the rubber mixes. In particular, the essential scorch time remains virtually unaffected if you add Koresin®. Users therefore enjoy improved process reliability. The positive cure behavior of Koresin® can be verified at various dosages of Koresin® and in different polymer systems.
