CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF RUBBER COMPOUNDS AND VULCANIZATES (VULCANIZED RUBBER) COMPOSITIONS

Chemical analysis of rubber compound and vulcanizate (vulcanized rubber) composition

  • Identification of rubbers or/and other polymers
  • Quantitative determination of individual rubbers
  • Determination of total organic additive content (extractive matter)
  • Qualitative and semi-quantitative determination of individual organic additives (softeners, antidegradants, crosslinking agents, processing agents, etc.)
  • Determination of carbon black content
  • Qualitative and quantitative determination of inorganic components
  • Determination of zinc, calcium, magnesium, silicon, aluminium and titanium content
  • Determination of total sulphur content
  • Determination of chlorine, bromine and fluorine content
  • Determination of nitrogen content

 

Ascertainment of vulcanized rubber quality and properties by chemical methods

  • Identification of surface substances (migrating components)
  • Identification of impurities and inhomogeneities
  • Estimation of crosslinking degree by determination of unbound sulphur, reaction enthalpy and equilibrium swelling in solvents
  • Calorimetric and spectroscopic monitoring of crosslinking course
  • Testing of resistance to various media by single-sided and immersion swelling
  • Testing of certain products for suitability in medical and food use
  • Determination of volatile components in vulcanized rubber (Fogging)
