Formation pratique Introduction aux techniques du caoutchouc

The Hands-on Course Introduction Rubber Technology is a 3-day workshop combining introduction theory into the world of rubber technology together with hands-on mixing, vulcanizing and testing your own produced compounds. During the mornings you will be introduced into the following topics:


  • What is rubber and what makes it special?
  • Different types of rubber
  • Compounding and mixing
  • Processing and vulcanization
  • Properties and testing
  • Failure analysis


During the afternoons, you will work yourself in our extensive laboratory by mixing your own compounds in an internal mixer and on a two-roll mill, vulcanizing your own test pieces by means of compression moulding and finally testing your own produced compounds for several physical-mechanical properties like density, hardness, stress-strain properties, tear and wear resistance, compression set, rebound resilience, electrical conductivity etc. 



To become familiar with the different types and grades of rubber, their properties, ingredients, processing techniques and applications. Rubber is very different relative to other materials like metals and plastics, with regard to their properties, applications and processing techniques. In general courses, rubber is only often limited part of the content.
