Resorcinol is a critical raw material for the production of reinforced rubber products used in industrial products, including natural and synthetic rubber to steel, nylon, polyester, aramid, glass and man-made fibers, tires and belts. In addition, resorcinol is linked to room cleaning and waterproofing and is a combination of resorcinol, resorcinol, ultraviolet light absorbers, fire retardants, polycarbonates, agricultural chemicals, urethane elastomers, dyestuffs and one of their ingredients. . Resorcinol comes as gray-white flakes.
- Widely used as an adhesion promoter between rubber and reinforcing cord/fabric such as steel, polyester, rayon, and aramid
- Highly reactive yet chemically stable in storage
- Acts as viscosity modifier in rubber compounding, yet improves stiffness in the cured compound
