The new issue of RFP is out! Find out how the ICCA developed at Coesfeld enables quantitative characterization of the chip and cut behavior of rubber for tire applications without field testing and how serinol derivatives can be employed for the sustainable vulcanization of diene elastomers. A study carried out by scientists at Bosch and Institute for Plastics Processing (IKV) Aachen shows how thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) and EPDM differ in their gas permeation behavior towards hydrogen. The University of Twente and the Polymer Science Park in Zwolle have established a link between research and education by cooperating in the newly founded Elastomer Competence Centre. Sigmasoft describes a virtual DoE for the improvement of part properties and Arburg presented its solutions for digitalization during the Arburg Technology Days 2019.
