DPG Medium speed Accelerator. It is used (normally in the range 0.5±0.3 phr dosages) as a secondary
accelerator in combination with thiazoles and sulphenamides. Such combinations give fast cures and a high level
of physicals with good modulus and are very popular for footwear & cables, etc. As a replacement of ETU, it is a
preferred accelerator for Neoprenes used in conjunction with TMT or MS (TMTMS) where
usage of both normally stay around 1 phr. It is also a popular accelerator (2.5-3 phr) for ebonites. DPG is used in
NR latex as a secondary gelling agent (“foam stabilizer”) in the silico-fluoride-gelled latex foam process.
