Polymer Formulation Development

As the rubber industry has evolved, many companies no longer develop their own polymer formulas. That’s where ALTTRAN is different. We work with our customers to create polymer formulations that meet exacting end-use specifications and process requirements. This “tailor-made” approach to polymer formulating is just one more way we bring additional value to our client relationships.

Some of our more popular polymer formulation types include:

• EPDM (Ethylene Propylene)
• NBR (Nitrile)
• NR (Natural Rubber)
• CR (Neoprene, trademarked)
• SBR (Styrene Butadiene)
• SNR (Synthetic Polyisoprene)
• HNBR (Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene)
• IIR (Butyl)
• Many others…

For a complete list of the of the polymer types we work with, please visit our Polymer Types page.

Going even further, if your company has existing polymer formulations, our ALTTRAN TECHNICAL SERVICES team can work with you to evaluate your formulations, make recommendations where necessary, and help reduce scrap and improve product performance, saving you time and money.

Contract Lab Testing

ALTTRAN TECHNICAL SERVICES provides contract testing services for the rubber industry. Our Rubber Test Lab is equipped with state-of-the-art testing equipment, and the industry’s leading chemists, allowing us to provide results that expand our customers’ understanding of the engineering properties of rubber.

Our lab scale mixing equipment and trained technical team make it easy and cost effective to evaluate alternate raw materials for cost savings or improved performance of your rubber product.

R&D for Your Rubber Product

ALTTRAN has the people and equipment to do more than quality control testing for your rubber product. With a focus on developing real world solutions, our R&D team works closely with customers on high performance rubber applications.

When a customer sends us a new polymer formulation, we start with an initial lab study to confirm physical properties and mixing methods. By taking this time at the beginning, there are no surprises when a rubber compound reaches the customer’s factory floor.

ALTTRAN personnel have the technical skills needed to sift through all the test data and find the answers. This ability to interpret the results is a critical part of our technical collaboration with customers. By providing meaningful recommendations, we can work together to drive business growth and maximize productivity.
