Breakthrough in new vulcanisation technology

Prinsipal Researcher Svein Jamtvedt

Norner has been part of the SafeRubber project having high focus on human health and environment.


In 2010 the SafeRubber project received EC funding under the FP7 framework to develop a new, safe, multifunctional accelerator curative molecule which can replace thiourea-based accelerators e.g.ETU in the vulcanisation process of polychloroprene.


After 3 years of work the The SafeRubber consortium now informs that they have achieved to identify a safer accelerator molecule.
