Vulcanization accelerators are important for sulfur vulcanization. Sulfur vulcanization is performed by heating the rubber to which sulfur was added. But, it proceeds very slowly in the absence of a vulcanization accelerator, and the properties of the vulcanized rubber are inferior. Vulcanization accelerator promotes the vulcanization reaction and improves the quality of the rubber. This report describes fundamentals of the vulcanization accelerator.
