However, this tendency is most pronounced for zinc peroxide. The reference included in the figure contains small zinc-oxide particles and larger cuprous-oxide particles, as well as some iron oxide.
Whereas magnesium, calcium, and strontium peroxide ultimately give alkaline by-products (group II metals), zinc peroxide is the only pigment investigated in this paper that gives amphoteric by-products when reacting with water.
The group contains the three experimental coatings; intermediate-polishing zinc peroxide, intermediate-polishing high-PVC zinc peroxide, and slow-polishing calcium peroxide.
Higher levels of zinc peroxide provided slightly higher hardness values.
Higher stiffness values are possible with 7 phr of zinc peroxide addition.
Lower levels of zinc peroxide were advantageous in reducing set.
Increased zinc peroxide level provided a moderate reduction in elongation loss as well.
In the case of the EV vulcanizates, however, an increase was given by the substitution of zinc peroxide for zinc oxide.
With both EV systems, 1 and 2, however, a marked improvement was obtained when zinc peroxide was substituted for zinc oxide.
The difference is substantially eliminated and the TR values are shifted towards lower temperatures if zinc peroxide is substituted for zinc oxide.
The EV 1 and EV 2 systems modified with zinc peroxide are intermediate in this respect.
