Application Advice/Typical Applications

Handling - Lithene ultra® AH is a highly viscous liquid polymer. The viscosity of the product will decrease rapidly with increasing temperature and the product may be warmed to allow easier processing.

Compatibility - Liquid polybutadienes are generally compatible with most aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbon solvents. They have limited solubility in alcohols, ketones and esters. Further details are available on request.

Lithene ultra® AH is a reactive polymer with a combination of 1,2 vinyl and cyclic vinyl micro structures which cure to give extremeley high cross link densities.Lithene ultra® AH is very low in odour and volatiles and is ideally suited for use in sulphur or peroxide cured EPDM rubber systems as a processing aid and to improve physical properties.

Lithene ultra® AH will readily cure at 160 - 200 °C in sulphur cured direct to oily metal, automotive adhesive systems particularly where high bond strengths are demanded. Adhesion of such sealants can be further increased by including Lithene ultra® AL-15MA in the sealant formulation.

Lithene ultra® AH can be cured with aromatic monomers and an appropriate peroxide initiator to form a hard, insulating resin for electric and electronic systems.

Further application and formulation advice is available on request.

Shipping and Storage

Lithene ultra® AH should be stored in cool, dry conditions below +30 °C (+86 °F). If stored in the original sealed packaging the product has a shelf life of at least 12 months from date of delivery. Product which has been stored for longer than 12 months should be tested before use. Containers which have been opened should be purged with dry nitrogen before resealing to protect the remaining product from oxidative skinning. Further information is available on the datasheet Storage of Lithene Liquid Polybutadienes. Lithene ultra® AH is packed in open top or bung top 200litre steel drums containing 175kg. The minimum order quantity is one pallet (four drums). 900kg IBCs are also available.
