Behind the numerous products made of rubber and its mixtures, the whole art of a well-organized technological process takes place. Taking into account the specifics of each customer's order, plant KAUCHUK technologists form formulations of rubber compounds with specified chemical and mechanical properties.
What components are included in rubber composition
Raw semi-finished rubber is a composition based on a polymer, a set of fillers, plasticizers, antioxidants, stabilizers. Their different combination, change in percentage of incoming substances, sequences of mixing at a certain temperature regime gives certain properties to each grade of rubber compound. In addition, modifying additives, activators, accelerators vulcanization, inhibitors, color pigments can be introduced into the composition.
Out of thousands components available on the market for creating rubber compounds, technologists choose 12 – 15. Their mixing gives a composition with the necessary properties, which will be easy to process and have the declared strength. Technical parameters of the rubber compound are always selected so that tested technical indicators exceed the stated customer's requirements.
Rubber compounds for all industries
Technologists experience by KAUCHUK plant allows to produce rubber compounds for almost all industries:
· low resistance rubber mixtures for the production of reinforced radiotechnical products;
· mixtures by different degrees of hardness and elastic deformation;
· amortization compositions;
· compounds with stability to ozone and other atmospheric influences, frost-resistant;
· rubber with increased mechanical resistance to abrasion;
· mixtures for gumming equipment in the chemical industry;
· general-purpose compounds;
· rubber for high-pressure hoses;
· development of new recipes by the customer's technical conditions.
Art of creating rubber compounds
The technological process consists in sequential mixing of components on the mix roller with following vulcanization. Vulcanization is carried out in various ways. Depth of its implementation determines the degree of rubber strength, elasticity, and chemical resistance. At the output, we get a rubber compound that is best suited for your application.
Variations of the obtained rubber compositions undergo manifold studies in laboratories and at the plant's testing facilities after hardening. They are checked for compliance with the stated requirements for mechanical properties, ease of processing, and resistance to aggressive environ.
KAUCHUK plant technologists have enormous experience in developing formulations of rubber compounds. Based on the future use of the product, you will receive an expert opinion of specialists on what properties the rubber mixture should have. If necessary, the technology department will develop a quality certificate and recommendations for operation.
