In some halogenated polymers, such as chlorinated polyethylene (CPE), chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSM), polychloroprene (CR) and epichlorohydrin (ECO), additives such as litharge, red lead, dibasic lead phthalate and dibasic lead phosphate are used to scavenge HCI produced in crosslinking, as well as from degradation during processing (ref.
The same considerations motivated the use of litharge in place of zinc oxide in SBR insulations for use in wet locations (ref.
Except for litharge and red lead, dibasic lead phthalate is the lead stabilizer most widely used in elastomers.

The litharge is implicated in converting the intermediate N-hydroxy compound the corresponding secondary amine (figure 11).
Crosslinking can be effected by the action of zinc oxide, magnesium oxide, litharge alone or in combination, and almost always with the aid of a solubilizing activator, such as stearic acid, zinc stearate or zinc octoate.
Inorganic materials such as zinc carbonate, litharge, magnesium oxide, etc.
