Challenging compound quality assumptions
Rubber compound quality has long been considered a black art. We’re challenging this assumption three ways with MixLoc:
- By defining nine distinct and controllable process steps to achieve consistent quality.
- By regularly sharing with customers specific data outputs for MixLoc compounds.
- Third, for each new MixLoc compound we develop, precisely defining a development sequence leading to a fully locked-down compound.
100% prime materials with no substitutions
MixLoc builds on our commitment to 100 percent prime materials with no substitutions and to excellence in lot traceability, investigating and monitoring supplier qualifications, process automation and more.
