Resumo

Activators are essential additives in the production of industrially viable elastomeric compounds. However, zinc oxide, the most widely used along with stearic acid, produces environmental damage due to tire wear; as a consequence, the powdered compound is released into the environment. For this reason, there is an intense search for additives from renewable sources that are sustainable, cheaper and eco-friendly. This work brings about the use of a new material from sugar cane as an alternative activator in the vulcanization of natural rubber. Both the favorable results obtained and the considerable reduction of zinc content (74.4%) used in the compounds, with similar results compared to the standard sample, highlight the possibility of changing conventional activators such as zinc oxide to a green option from sugar cane.
