Finishing of rubber compounds
The finishing of rubber compounds involves fulfilling specific customer requirements that cannot be met during the actual compounding process by means of a subsequent processing step. A number of different finishing processes are used.
As part of the conversion process, the finished rubber compound can be made into a wide variety of shapes and geometries. For example, the customer can receive the materials in the form of sheets or blanks, strips and profiles, extruded round cords, calendered sheets or wigwags. They can be supplied as calendered films, free-flowing pellets, continuous strips or sheets, continuously wound or cut to length.
