ARTIS Scientists win the Alan Glanvill award

iom3

ARTIS Scientists have been awarded the prestigious Alan Glanvill award for their paper, ‘Pyrolytic carbon: factors controlling in-rubber performance

The award is given to Chris Norris, Mike Hale and Martyn Bennet for published work of particular merit in the field of polymers. The paper discusses the nature of pyrolytic carbon and how it performs in rubber materials when used as a filler, how it compares to conventional blacks and why it behaves as it does.

It is a seminal work explaining why pyrolytic carbon gives one set of properties when measured as a colloid but behaves completely differently to expectations when used as a filler.

The work puts ARTIS firmly in the lead when it comes to understanding the nature of the material and follows a global benchmarking exercise carried out to inform the industry of the relative position of the major providers of this material.
