Final properties of a rubber product originate from the development, as well as a compromise made between various properties of materials that act individually or interact to finally result in desired features. Various types of rubber define their resistance to various environmental impacts such as different media, atmospheric influence and temperature. Other characteristics are obtained through combinations of rubbers, fillers, process additives, and the vulcanisation system used.
Here we would like to enumerate only a few requirements with regard to rubber-based materials, which frequently appear as a combination of requirements for the same material:
- Compounds that are highly resistant to certain types of oil
- Highly fire-proof compounds
- Electrostatic compounds
- Insulating compounds
- Compounds for high-temperature applications
- Compounds for low-temperature applications
- Compounds for rubber-to-metal bond
- Compounds for gas applications according to EN 682
- Compounds for sanitary applications according to EN 681
- Compounds resistant to dynamic fatigue
- Highly abrasion-resistant compounds
- Compounds possessing excellent physical properties
- Compounds possessing special processing properties
In addition to the characteristics of a final product, we also focus on the processing properties of rubber compounds as they have to assure the efficient manufacture of industrial rubber products with the technology equipment that our customers have installed in their plants.
