Tommie Ibert, Development Engineer, tests the new advanced video extensometer that has been installed at the Nynas Rubber Compounding Lab in Nynäshamn.
The extensometer is a significant complement to the tensile testing machine, to monitor the true extension of the test sample, hence giving more detailed information on the tensile properties of the rubber material. This means you have optical mapping of the tensile behaviour from start until fracture, without any physical contact with the test specimen.
With the new equipment it is possible to show how different process oils affect the tensile properties which are important for the design of rubber materials used in the tyre and industrial rubber industries.
Nynas bio-based tyre oil NYTEX® BIO 6200 is currently ranked as one of most important sustainability projects by the European Rubber Journal.Read more about NYTEX® BIO 6200 achieves high ranking
More than simply recycling, circular economy is about capturing a larger part of the value that is typically lost in our traditional linear economic model. For Nynas, a circular approach is one of the things that separates us from regular oil companies.Read more about Time to go circular
