It has strong tackiness and adhesive properties and improves hardness. Using KURARAY LIQUID RUBBER during the rubber compounding phase significantly reduces processing time while maintaining the rubber compound’s physical properties. It is commonly used in tires, belts, hoses, rubber goods, tapes, shoes, lubricants and bonding agents, and more.
