Tetra Methyl Thiuram Disulphide (TMTD or Thiram)

Thiram is a fungicide, ectoparasiticide, and animal repellent, used to prevent fungal diseases in seed & crops and as an animal repellent to protect fruit trees and ornamentals. Thiram has been used in the treatment of human scabies, as a sun screen and as a bactericide applied directly to the skin or incorporated into soap.

TMTD can be used alone or in combination with other accelerators for pale and brilliantly coloured rubber goods without taste, good in contact with food and drugs, dipped goods, proofed fabrics and all other kinds of mechanical goods.

TMTD in combination with other suitable accelerators, yields relatively faster curing compounds based on SBR. Nitrile Neoprene and Butyl rubbers, which are inherently slower curing polymers than NR.
