Rhein Chemie has been highly successful with Rhenogran® and continues to expand the line with new product developments. Rhenogran® is the brand name under which the company produces and markets pre-dispersed, polymer-bound rubber additives. Rhenogran® can significantly improve the quality of a rubber compound thanks to the selected, pre-dispersed powder chemicals it contains. Because Rhenogran® is dust-free, it also eliminates the health risks associated with inhaling dangerous chemical dusts. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are the latest example of the application of this concept to an innovative raw material. CNTs display extraordinary physical properties, such as very high electrical and thermal conductivity combined with the immense strength of the individual nanotubes.
