Tires are the largest rubber
product segment, benefiting from high motor vehicle production and a large motor vehicle park.
However, during the initial high temperature testing of rubber
compounds for static FEA, we discovered the trend of stress change was somehow contradictory to these results.
HNBR is a specialty rubber
with very good resistance to heat, ozone, chemicals, and oil, suiting it well to automotive applications, cable coverings, and various mechanical rubber
