According the cct, the space will offer room to run analytical and rubber application tests for rCB. The lab is separated into three sections – an analytics room (spectroscopy, particle dimensions, visual and compound analysis), a press room (vulcanisation and physical rubber properties) and a mixing room. As previously reported by the European Rubber Journal, cct officially began supplying rCB out of its Stegelitz production plant to an international tire manufacturer in November.
