Comparison of aging of a sulfur vulcanizate with a control having stable crosslinks, shows that oxygen affects reactions of the crosslink as well as of the hydrocarbon. Crosslink scission is inhibited. Results are in agreement with an earlier Suggestion that new crosslinking is enhanced by oxygen, although less than observed for natural rubber. This may be an effect of carbon black and amine antioxidants present in the vulcanizates.
