S&N Rubber Facilities


Rheometers, Viscometers, Densitrons and an RPA are used to test the rheological and other properties of all compounds mixed. The physical properties of the compounds, such as hardness, tensile strength and elongation at break, are tested in a temperature-controlled laboratory. All test and statistical data are electronically stored and provided to the customer, via e-mail, prior to shipping.

Additional testing available in the S&N Rubber laboratory:

  • Rebound resilience
  • Dispersion (Phillips scale)
  • Heat ageing
  • Fuel/oil resistance
  • Tensile strength
  • Abrasion testing
  • Tear strength
  • Compression set
  • Tension set
  • Mooney viscosity
  • Fatigue testing and Ozone testing
  • Specific RPA Analysis
