BM Rubber: 4 April 2017
A Brand New Mix
Technical Seminar on Rubber Mixing in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
On 4 April 2017, Behn Meyer Vietnam, in cooperation with Performance Additives, Sin Rubtech and the Ho Chi Minh Rubber Association, held a technical seminar in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on rubber mixing. The seminar offered small- and medium-sized enterprises the opportunity to exchange knowledge with leading experts in the rubber industry. The event saw a turnout of 38 participants.

The first and most important stage of rubber production is the mixing stage. In this seminar, Behn Meyer focused on sharing solutions to support the rubber mixing process.

Technical expert from Performance Additives took turns during the event touching on the roles and benefits of rubber compound processing, and also sharing methods to improve the mixing process, particularly for CR compounds.

At the event, Performance Additives also took the opportunity to introduce methods to improve silica compound mixing and the mixing sequence, but the highlight of their sharing came when they introduced DFR, a new generation of processing additives which integrates dispersion, flow and release properties in order to further improve the processing of new tyre materials.

Sin Rubtech, the manufacturer of polymer-bound pre-dispersed chemicals (PBPC), played a strong role in cooperating with us to solve problems in rubber mixing, especially the dispersion of rubber chemicals in open mills. At the seminar, Sin Rubtech introduced PBPC in EPDM and NBR compounds, demonstrating outstanding advantages over powdered chemicals.
