This Polymer Bulletin is a current awareness service from the Polymer Library, the worlds largest database dedicated to polymer literature. Each time the abstracts database is updated with new records (approx. every two weeks) you will be sent a bulletin alerting you to any items that relate to rubber mixing.
The art of mixing in the rubber industry has a long history. The origins of the modern mixers in use today can still be clearly traced back to the earliest practical internal mixers developed as long ago as 1916. Mills are also still used extensively for certain compounding applications, and these employ principles that date back still further. Nonetheless developments continue to be made. Increasingly demanding applications for rubber components necessitate improvements in quality, better dispersion, high uniformity and perfect reproducibility. There have been many advances in rotor designs, as well as in drive systems and temperature control, and whilst mixer performance is clearly the most important factor in controlling compound quality, ancillary equipment (supply and downstream) also has an important role to play.
A Current Awareness service from us may be just what you need to update your knowledge with ease and accuracy without having to waste time, effort and money finding the information yourself.
