[image_0]Rhein Chemie offers a variety of tyre-making solutions with its comprehensive portfolio of eco-friendly Rhenodiv tyre release agents. Permanent bladder coatings, which enable tyres to be vulcanised without the need for tyre spray solutions containing silicones, open up further possibilities for tyre manufacturers to improve efficiency and quality, says the company. This is particularly beneficial when manufacturing highly complex products such as tyres with run-flat, self-sealing and noise-reducing properties. New quality control concept for black rubber compounds To realise low scrap rates, the content, dispersion, and distribution of fillers and curing additives need to be evaluated quickly and representatively. This applies in particular to continuous processes. With Rhenowave, Rhein Chemie presents a new quality control concept for black compounds. During extrusion compounds are scanned by ultra-sonic sound in a pulse transmission process. A specially developed marker enables to scan the distribution of the curing additives.
