  • Description for Elantas (Altana) RN-3038

    Provide properties generally not available in rubbers, plastics, or metals. They offer performance improved solvent and oil resistance and better thermal stability than most other “general purpose” rubbers and plastics. Other outstanding properties include high abrasion and tear resistance, excellent load-bearing capacity, toughness, and resiliency.

  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) RN-3038

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Mixing

      Pour mixed system into molds, preheated to 80°C, that have been coated with a Cytec mold release.

      Automatic metering and mixing equipment can be used with all the RN-3038 systems.

    2. Deairing/Degassing

      Heat pre-weighed amounts of RN-3038 to 80-100°C and degas at 1-5mm of vacuum for at least 5 minutes or until excessive bubbling stops. Containers should be unlined metal, plastic or glass and should be large enough to allow for foaming during degassing.

      When adding MbOCA to RN-3038, the MbOCA must be melted at 120°C prior to mixing. CONACURE° AH-50 is a liquid at room temperature and does not require preheating prior to mixing with RN-3038. After adding curative, mix thoroughly and degas at 1-5mm for 1 to 2 minutes.
