ALTTRAN History & Vision for the Rubber Industry

ALTTRAN specializes in mixing clean and consistent color rubber and black rubber compounds, developing polymer formulas, and providing lab testing for companies throughout the rubber industry. Our industry leading chemists and technical team have the knowledge to help improve the quality and performance of your rubber product. Therefore we can reduce scrap rates, and lower cost while maintaining predictable and consistent physical properties.

With over 30 years of experience in the rubber industry Dave and Debbie Topliff founded ALTTRAN in 2005 with the vision to start a rubber company with a more personal, customer-focused approach.

“The vision is to continually increase our technical knowledge for the benefit of our customers. Constant improvement of our lab capabilities and mixing performance helps us reach this goal.”

Lab Testing and Adaptation

ALTTRAN TECHNICAL SERVICES LogoAt ALTTRAN, having our own in-house lab enables us to yield fast results. From rubber analysis to polymer testing, to production, we can reduce development time and get your rubber product into production quickly. Alttran Technical Services (ATS) bridges the technical gap in the rubber industry by providing ASTM testing, polymer formulation development, raw material validations, rubber product performance evaluations, and more.

In addition, our lab testing includes heat agings, low temperature brittleness, abrasion resistance, electrical conductivity and resistivity, fluid and swell testing, among others.

Combine this with flexibility, expertise, potential for high capacity, and the ability to mix both client-provided polymer formulas and custom rubber compounds in a wide variety of elastomers, we can get your rubber product out fast.
