Pine Tar

Pine Tar has been used as a process aid and tackifier for almost as long as the rubber industry has existed and its excellent properties in those fields, has long been known.

The fluid, oily nature of the material gives a process aid that is:

  • easily incorporated into the compound
  • fully compatible with many polymers
  • is a very useful tackifier
  • reduces the viscosity and so improves the processability of the rubber compound - shorter mixing times - save money etc.

For other pine tars, unrelated to rubber process aids, see specialty chemicals.
