Royalene® EPDM is a high performance specialty rubber that offers exceptional properties. Its excellent chemical resistance, resilience, heat aging, and low temperature serviceability make it the ideal polymer for a wide range of automotive applications including: weather seal, belting, hoses, wire insulation and a host of other applications. Royalene®has the inherent capability to withstand harsh weather and temperature extremes. These properties make it an outstanding choice for use in single-ply roof membranes, expansion joints and architectural weather seals. Chemtura RoyalEdge™ EPDM represents a new generation of Royalene® elastomers which combine proprietary catalyst development with process modifications to make tailor-made products that provide outstanding processing, superior physical properties and improved visual surface appearance. Trilene® is a new and exciting generation of thermal and shear stable, weather resistant, viscous liquid polymers. Trilene is used as a superior process aid for molded and extruded parts, automotive sealants, construction sealants and electrical encapsulation, and for modification of gear lubrication products.
Crop Protection Chemicals:
Maleic Hydrazide is produced in pure technical form and formulated into Royal MH-30® and Royal Slo-Gro® plant growth regulants at the Gastonia, North Carolina Plant. These finished products prevent the growth of suckers on tobacco plants and prevent the sprouting in potatoes and onions. B-Nine® is produced and formulated at the Geismar Plant. Potted ornamental flowers treated with B-Nine® are compact, dense and uniform, with lush, dark leaves that make their healthy, long-lasting blooms really stand out.
