Norner: Breakthrough in New Vulcanisation Technology
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 can report that they successful have achieved to identify a safer accelerator molecule.
The main contribution of Norner AS, Stathelle, Norway, in the project has been work within Health, Safety and Environment and especially work related to REACH (European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use) and testing for REACH registration.
