In this webinar you will learn how to improve mechanical properties and increase recycled content of rubber parts. Today recycled rubber is used in in many applications; however use of recycled rubber comes with challenges such as processing of high recycled rubber compounds, sharp-drop in mechanical properties, and manufacturing defects in final end products.
Find out how to combine better processing and superior performance by incorporating an additive technology that has proven itself in the last 20 years. Together we will explore 3 main strategies to bridge the performance gap when using recycled rubber: type of rubber, particle and surface size, and surface modification with and without using VESTENAMER® transpolyoctenamer (TOR).
Join us in this informative webinar where Alexander Paasche, Business Development and Ankur Kant, Business Development Manager, Evonik Industries will address an effective way to evaluate your process, increase recycle content, reduce costs, and take part in a more sustainable economy.
