TMQ also known as (2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline) used as an antioxidant. TMQ act as a radical scavenger in elastomers to protect against oxidative aging.
What are the benefits and the features of TMQ?
- Long-time persistence allows to provide long term heat, oxygen and fatigue aging
- It inhibits oxidation catalysed by heavy metals
- Migrates slowly in the rubber matrix and does not bloom
For which applications can TMQ be used?
- Rubber Compounding
- Tires and automotive
- Adhesives, wire and cables
