Improve processing of recycled materials without sacrificing quality

Sustainability & Circularity is a big focus nowadays. In this webinar you will learn how a high molecular weight process-aid such as VESTENAMER® trans polyoctenamer can enable use of recycled rubber materials such as recycled carbon blacks, tire-derived polymers, and recycled rubbers (GTR) in rubber compounds.
The example presented in the webinar will focus on incorporating recycled materials in a windshield wiper blade compound. Together we will explore effects on the formulation and then drill down into more specific details with recycled carbon black (rCB). We will also review performance of trans polyoctenamer versus a high molecular fatty acid ester as a reference in this study.
Join us in this informative webinar where Alexander Paasche, Global Business Development Manager and Ankur Kant, Global Business Manager, Evonik Corporation will address an effective way to evaluate your process, increase recycle content, reduce costs, and take part in a more sustainable economy.
