Rubber chemicals fundamentally impact the safety and sustainability of rubber products.
Rubber chemicals make rubber products last longer. Longer lasting products mean less waste. For example, with over 3 billion tyres produced globally, extending their lifetime can substantially reduce waste volumes.
Rubber products are used in a range of applications where safety is critical. Besides tyres, just think of conveyer belts, seals, gaskets and medical equipment. Rubber chemicals protect the rubber from UV light, oxidisation, ozone and other external factors as to ensure it is up to the job.
Rubber chemicals help the energy needed for rubber productions. Advanced rubber chemicals can also help energy efficiency in applications, especially tyres, by improving performance.
