Research group

Rubber processes and materials

The aim of this group is complex study of processing, production and characterization of rubber in order to understand the influence of individual factors, such as blend composition and processing conditions or influence of external degradation agent to final product properties. Samples of compounds can be prepared by two roll mill, calendar and internal mixer. Testing samples of various shapes which are compressed moulded and vulcanized can be prepared. There is also a coextrusion line for preparation of profiles made from silicone and other rubbers with vulcanization chamber, towing and cutting device and a device for on-line measurement of the geometry of extruded profile.
Deep expertise in the field of the theoretical, experimental and analytical description of mechanisms and structure relations of fracture behaviour of rubber in dependence on degradation mechanism and physical influences is a speciality of this group. Besides conventional tests such as mechanical and thermoanalytical methods, vulcameter, tribometer also very unique testing methods like Tear analyzer, Chip&Cut device with instrumented edge are used for the characterization of materials.
