Mineral Fillers -(Rubber)
The addition of the correct Vanderbilt mineral filler to an adhesive compound not only decreases product cost but can also increase its physical properties. The addition of mineral fillers can increase the viscosity, opacity and weight of the compound, reduce shrinkage and cracking, and increase the speed of melting and cooling in hot melts. The use of mineral fillers will also affect physical strength and vibration damping.
