Through its past association with Avon Rubber p.l.c. ARTIS have a comprehensive library of industrial and academic rubber formulations for many automotive applications. In addition we welcome requests for custom formulation development for new applications.
ARTIS have a long history and extensive library of automotive formulations developed to meet current industrial automotive specifications. Through links with custom compounders and processors we can take requests from the laboratory development phase through to industrial scale up and production approvals. Our expert staff have intimate knowledge in formulating for:
ABRASION AND CHIPPING EVALUATION
For tyre and wear reduction, abrasion and chunking performance is often of critical importance. ARTIS have industrial standard and bespoke equipment which allows us to characterise the abrasion and wear of compounds and correlate these results with fundamental material properties.
Electrochemical degradatrion (ECD) is a failure mechanism seen in engine coolant hoses whereby an electrical circuit is set up between the engine, coolant hose and coolant liquid. During the 1990's ARTIS worked extensively with suppliers to develop suitable tests to replicate this phenomena and are now recognised as a leading authority on the problem. Whether it is characterization of the cause of a problem or alternative formulations to prevent an occurrence we are confident we can help.
