Improving dynamic fatigue

Fatigue enhancing properties in our product SIDISTAR

When adding SIDISTAR additive to an elastomeric compound, one can achieve improvement of dynamic fatigue life up to 30 – 50%. These results can be obtained in a wide range of elastomers like NR, EPDM, BIIR and even FKM. The fatigue improvement finds its origin in the spherical shape and capability of dispersing down to primary particles. SIDISTAR™ product primary particles have a mean particle size of 150 nm. The most commonly used SIDISTAR™ dosage, for these fatigue life improvements, lays in the range of 10 – 15 phr. There is little to no influence observed for physical properties and hardness of the final product.
Today our product SIDISTAR is mainly used for its fatigue enhancing properties in applications like: anti-vibration pads, bushings and power transmission belts.
