Innovation in the production of rubber compounds. The Kauchuk company introduces green technologies – environmentally friendly rubber compounds for the automotive industry. This is another step towards sustainable development.
The company “Kauchuk” for many years has been working on the creation of environmentally friendly “green” rubber products. The result of these works was the production of rubber compounds for the manufacture of automotive rubber products from environmentally friendly materials. In rubber compounds, the following components were reduced to 0.2 phr: N-isopropyl-N-phenyl-p-phenylenediamine, 2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline, N-cyclohexylthiophthalimide, and carbon black was also excluded. The use of environmentally friendly natural analogues made it possible to reduce the amine-containing inhibitors to a safe amount, which reduced the effect on the sublimation, migration and volatility of the above rubber inhibitors on the environmental situation of production and processing, as well as the operation of rubber products. In addition, the presence of surfactants in them improved the dispersion of the rubber compound ingredients, which led to the stabilization of the properties of the vulcanizates. It should be noted that the obtained rubber compounds have a lower viscosity, which reduces energy consumption during their processing and has performance similar to a rubber compound using classical ingredients.
