GRI has developed an Eco-Friendly version of its high-performance ULTIMATE XT solid tire. The GRI R&D team, in collaboration with a team of scientists from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Colombo, has developed the ULTIMATE XT eco-friendly version by replacing petroleum-based oil with natural oil, which is carbon neutral and renewable.
Next week the company known for tough flexible additive manufacturing photopolymers, Adaptive3D, will introduce a high tear-strength direct curing rubber and polyurethane-like elastomer at FormNext in Frankfurt.
Dow will be presenting its full portfolio of high-performance SILASTIC™ silicone elastomers at K 2019. Dow’s SILASTIC™ technologies help meet customer manufacturing requirements in various applications such as consumer goods, electrical industry and automotive industry.
The automotive industry is one of the pioneers when it comes to exploiting optical silicones for lighting systems. In addition to this, LSR is also becoming increasingly important as a lens material for street and building lighting.
Generally, molecules in liquid crystals will automatically self-organize in a well-ordered manner.
The Goodyear AERO concept is a two-in-one tire designed for the autonomous, flying cars of the future. This concept would work both as a tire for driving on the road and a “propeller” for flying through the sky.
Natural rubber from rubber trees is a raw material with a limited supply. Synthetically produced rubber, on the other hand, has not yet been able to match the abrasion behavior of the natural product, rendering it unsuitable for truck tires.
Could rubber and plastic from tyres, washing into rivers and streams, be contributing to pollution in waste water? A group of scientists from Denmark are using a system from Renishaw to find out.
Scientists from the University of Sheffield have developed and successfully tested a new way of protecting concrete from fire damage using materials recycled from used tires.
The food and beverage sector has been a long-held area of focus for NSK, which is one the world’s largest manufacturers of rolling bearings. Specific to this industry, NSK rolling bearings feature highly relevant design attributes such as rustproof materials, sealed construction and lifelong lubricants that are compatible with foodstuffs.
