Thomas Swan has developed a range of bonding agents for the rubber processing and polymer industries.
The Casabond™ range includes rubber bonding agents used in high performance metal-to-rubber and textile-to-rubber applications. Products include resorcinol/stearic acid blends for use by compounders, reactive isocyanates for use in solvent adhesives and phenolic condensates for use with RFLs.
