The raw rubber requires the addition of peroxides for vulcanization at elevated temperatures. A homogeneous  incorporation is a must, but please avoid temperatures >30°C along the incorporation process in order to maintain best processing behavior. Pot life is depending on the used peroxide and storage condition.
