Strained Rubber Compounds

Strainers are used in connection with rubber compounds when the compounds are pressed through a very narrow-meshed screen in an extruder in a further work step after the actual mixing process.
In many cases, screen widths of less than 0.5 mm are used. Impurities are retained in the screen and thus removed from the compound batch.
Trained rubber compounds are used in particular for products in the medical technology and semiconductor industries, but also for the high-end automotive sector.
Computed tomography analyses show that the finished parts produced from trained compounds have a very homogeneous elastomer structure without interfering foreign inclusions.
