Rubber process analyser

The Rubber Process Analyzer (RPA) is an advanced (dynamic mechanical rheological) test instrument, designed to measure the viscoelastic properties of polymers and rubber compounds before, during and after cure.

The RPA 2000 meets the full range of testing requirements of the complete manufacturing process:

•Incoming polymer characterization

•Incoming raw material test

•Master batch testing

•Final compound testing

•Cured compound testing
