High-grade materials from all over the world
Rubber compounds are made up of a wide variety of raw materials. The main constituent is natural rubber, of which there are 20 to 25 different types. At RADO we process both synthetic rubber, which is produced in specialist plants by means of specific polymerisation methods, and original natural rubber, which comes from large plantations in countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam.
In addition, rubber production requires a combination of various chemicals, including:
- Light-coloured fillers or carbon blacks
- Crosslinking agents
- Coloured pigments
Our in-house database contains well over 1000 raw materials. In our warehouses, several hundred tonnes of raw material are waiting at any one time to be processed in our mixing plants.
