CONSTANT RE-BOUND

Due to a refined mixing process of the raw materials.

QUALITY SHAPE

Exact and constant shape.

100% TESTED

Each individual length of rubber is tested.

COMPOUND – PREPARATION

DENSITY

Rubber-compound-density is measured in gr/cm3.

TENSILE STRENGTH

The compound is tested on a traction-machine and the result is expressed in MPa.

ELONGATION AT BREAK

This is measured also on a traction-machine and is measured until break as a percentage versus the initial length.

VISCOSITY

This is measured with a “visco-meter” and is expressed in “Moony-point” units.

VULCANISATION –  PROCESS

RHEOMETRIC COMPOUND CONTROL

Temperature-stability is extremely important in order to get the optimum end-result, therefore it is monitored constantly.

PRE-FORM

The rubber is extruded as a pre-form; it is formed as a rough shape of the final product.

TEXTILE POSITIONING

Linen is positioned on this rough form; it will act as a stabilizer for the cushions after moulding.

COMPRESSION MOULDING

The rough shape is placed in a compression mould where it will be heated while being compressed during an exactly defined time. During this process the elastomer molecules will be cross-linked so that the rubber gets its required stiffness but retains its extensibility.

TESTING

SHORE HARDNESS

This is measured with a durometer at 3 positions on each length.

REBOUND

Is measured on a rebound-tester according to the Klematch method.

VISUAL ASPECT

Colour must be uniform.

AGING

4 samples per batch are tested for aging-resisting properties.
