The article presents information on the performance of acrylates as anti-reversion agents in the manufacture of tires. According to the author, inherent drawbacks of the sulfur-derived network in tire manufacture must be addressed. The major disadvantage of polysulfidic networks is poor thermal stability. He states that in sulfur-cured vulcanizates, reversion can be defined by a reduction in physical properties associated with a loss of network integrity.
