Understand the Process of Formulation, Mixing and Molding Required to Produce Thermoset Rubber Compounds

Rubber has a wide range of applications in the medical, electrical, automotive, chemicals and appliance industries. To meet this demand 15 billion kilograms of rubber is produced every year. Rubber has many useful and important properties because of its unique molecular structure which offers the material high ultimate elongation coupled with good elastic recovery. Also, it's relatively flexible and soft, and useful in wide range of temperatures and maintains good chemical resistance.

This session by our expert speaker, Jeffrey A. Jansen, will introduce you to the basics and most important topics related to thermoset rubber compounds. You will gain a much better understanding of the characteristics of rubber materials. While often treated as a commodity, rubber is a complex engineering material. Different types of rubber are required under various circumstances. This presentation will familiarize you with the formulation, mixing, and molding required to produce rubber compounds for a variety of applications, as well as tell you how to specify rubber compounds.

Learning Objectives:

  • Compounding is creating a rubber recipe or formulation and proper formulation is essential to achieving successful performance of a rubber component.
  • One of the primary objectives of rubber mixing is to prepare a uniform blend of all of the rubber formulation constituents in the mixed batch in such a way that each segment of the mixed compound is of uniform composition.
  • The properties of the rubber component will be essentially determined by the compounding and molding of the material - both are equally important.
  • The specification of rubber materials through ASTM D 2000 "Standard Classification System for Rubber Products in Automotive Applications" can be confusing, but is an important part of the design and purchasing process.
  • Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and thermoset rubbers can look and feel similar, but are very different materials with unique properties
