The state-of-the-art U.S. based rubber mixing facility increases manufacturing capacity as well as shipping, storage, and office space as part of a three-phase, multi-year expansion driven by ongoing customer growth and continued support from the local community in Cambridge, Ohio.
The Cambridge-based custom polymer mixing company welcomes Bobbi McMillen to the LMI materials team.
A cellular, or sponge rubber compound, is made up of raw materials found in most standard rubber compounds such as a base polymer, fillers and plasticizers as well as processing, antidegradant and curing additives. However, it also includes a blowing agent that creates a specific type of cellular structure within the rubber matrix during the curing process.
Each type of rubber polymer has its own unique properties. Selecting the right rubber polymer material for your end-use application is critical in determining the custom rubber compound that will offer the best product performance.
