Akron, Ohio – Eastman will be presenting the latest breakthrough in its insoluble sulphur product line for increased efficiency in tire production, at the International Elastomer Conference (IEC 2019) in Cleveland in October.
Crystex Cure Pro, from Eastman Crystex insoluble sulphur range, has shown a “remarkable ability to increase productivity,” according to Eastman technology fellow Fred Ignatz-Hoover.
“At the tire factory level, tire-producing customers have seen Cure Pro improve mixing capacity from 25 to 30%,” said Ignatz-Hoover who will be speaking about compounding and processing rubber compounds containing insoluble sulphur at the event.
“Profitability isn’t just about improving sales,” said Ignatz-Hoover. “Every percentage of energy savings and improved production efficiency in the factory helps your bottom line.”
The International Rubber Conference will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, 8-10 Oct.
