Compound control is performed by the laboratory where vulcanization properties of each compound charge. Physical properties of each compound batch are checked. In addition to the basic tests, other physical-chemical properties of vulcanized rubber can be tested too (tensile test, compression strain test, abrasion, weathering resistance and other).
