Two mixing units are at the heart of the elastomer technical center: an internal mixer and the rolling mill. A vulcanization press is available for the crosslinking process. The compounds and vulcanizates are also tested in-house. A large number of test devices have been set up to determine the processing, vulcanization and usage properties of elastomers, but chemical analyzes are also an integral part.
As a manufacturer of high-quality zinc derivatives, which are of critical importance for the crosslinking reaction of elastomers, extensive technical know-how has been built up here in recent years.
Many innovative products have already been created, tested and brought to our customers by our development team:
Whether it is recipe optimization through material exchange, cost optimization, improvement of processing properties, or environmental standards, the elastomer technical center develops fast, targeted solutions, thus making its contribution to the overall portfolio of Brüggemann.
