Mixing of rubber compound is carried out in modern, variable speed, F305 internal mixers. The mixing process is fully automated and controlled by a Zeppelin or Chronos Richardson, operating system.
Cooling and stacking of mixed rubber is also handled by automated conveyor systems.
The Elastomers has a well equipped laboratory with MDR's (Moving Die Rheometers), for batch release testing and a Mooney Viscometer, for viscosity and compound scorch measurement. The laboratory is also equipped with a DIN abrasion tester and a laser, Houndsfield, tensile tester for compound, physical test requirements.
