Overview

The Material

Insoluble sulfur is the vulcanizing agent of choice for the tire industry. Crystex® is a polymeric form of sulfur that is a non-blooming vulcanizing agent for rubber. By being insoluble in rubber, Crystex® prevents sulfur migration and, in turn, bloom which interferes with the tire building process. The use of insoluble sulfur is critical for the manufacture of quality radial tires.
