Translink®

Surface Functionalised Kaolin

Translink® kaolins from BASF are surface-treated with organosilanes to facilitate cross-linking with polymer systems. Translink® 37 has a vinyl surface functionality which enables it to cross-link into EPDM rubber. This enhances long term wet electrical properties, surface finish, tree resistance, mechanical propeties and procesing in wire & cable applications.
