Piperidines (Up one level)
Piperidine is used in elastomer processing. Unlike inorganic vulcanizing accelerators, organic accelerators based on piperidine can be easily dispersed into the rubber compound. Specifically, piperidine is used in the manufacture of important catalysts such as p-Phenylenediamine (PPD) and dipentamethylene thiuram tetrasulfate (DPTS), which are both ultra accelerator and vulcanizing agents.
