Harmonite® is a unique, multi-functional, versatile base ingredient and additive that’s a high performance, economical alternative for organic and inorganic ingredients used in compounding formulations. It is a finely divided, organic coated, inorganic composite powder made from 100% post-consumer waste asphalt roofing shingles. Harmonite® has been shown to economically enhance properties of formulations in multiple applications.

Performance
  • Shorten cure time
  • Increase viscosity
  • Plasticizer effect in rubber compounds
  • Shorten mix time & reduce power consumptions
  • Increase resistance to deformation (increase load capacity)
  • Increase tack
