MBI as such is seldom used in the rubber industry as it inhibits little ageing properties in rubber compounds. MBI is
used primarily as synergestic additive for other antioxidants of both amine and phenolic types especially in
improving heat ageing resistance and countering metallic
contaminations. Typical dosage varies from 0.5 – 1.0 phr
depending upon the improvements
required in ageing. It however does little help in improving flex – crack
MBI is entirely non-staining and non-discolouring.
