Rubber Consultants Open Days 14th - 16th June 2016

Rubber Consultants’ three Open Days on 14th-16th June proved to be a resounding success attracting existing and potential new clients to Brickendonbury where they were able to get a thorough insight into the wide range of services we can provide to the elastomer and polymer-related industries.

Visitors were shown around our newly refurbished facilities for rubber-based R&D and consultancy services and given the opportunity to meet our staff and appreciate the extent of work undertaken in our laboratories.

Companies were also introduced to the work we carry out to assist suppliers of rubber-based products to source high quality, competitive components and materials whilst providing technical support and advice.

Short presentations were well received and covered areas including:

  • Chemical analysis for quality assurance and problem solving
  • Physical and dynamic testing of rubbery materials
  • Engineering design and component testing
  • Technical support and compound development, fire retardancy
  • Biotechnology in the rubber industry, including Latex-T test kit
  • Development of Ekoprena compounds for tyres
  • Tyre testing

During the laboratory tours, excellent feedback was also received on the scope and range of our testing equipment. Staff were on hand to answer any questions and discuss enquiries relating to specific areas of work in more depth.

Dr Stuart Cook, Head of Rubber Consultants said ‘it was particularly pleasing to meet so many new contacts as well as reconnecting with our valued existing clients. I feel certain that visitors have a much clearer view of just how extensive our range of services are and that we are not just a test house. Our team of scientists and technologists look forward to using their skills and knowledge to support our customers and help to grow their business’.
