Rubber World Hotlinks@rubberworld.com.Preferred Rubber Compounding develops and produces high quality black and colored organic rubber compounds. Typically, products from Preferred Rubber Compounding are purchased by rubber fabricators who process the compounds and transform them into rubber parts for the aerospace, automotive (non-tire), appliance, construction, electrical and pharmaceutical industries. Preferred Rubber Compounding specializes in producing complex-process and high-performance compounds which must meet exacting requirements to ensure the integrity of the finished product. In addition to providing compounds to a customer's proprietary recipe, Preferred Rubber Compounding also works closely with customers in helping to develop new formulations that offer increased performance and ease-of-manufacturing characteristics. To meet customer demands for compounds that are consistently of the highest quality, PRC has achieved ISO (1) See ISO speed.
(2) (International Organization for Standardization, Geneva, Switzerland, www.iso.ch) An organization that sets international standards, founded in 1946. The U.S. member body is ANSI. 9001 accreditation. This program of ongoing analysis and procedures enables PRC to design and manufacture compounds that meet customer specifications.
For production activities, PRC has an ongoing program for continuous equipment upgrades, including the acquisition of new machinery and control systems. Networked computer systems feature proprietary software which precisely controls materials, mixing, scheduling and all quality reporting activities.
To meet its goals for delivering compounds of the very highest quality, PRC has invested heavily in its laboratory facilities which utilize the latest equipment and statistical process control techniques.

The common thread that runs through all of these divisions is polymer chemistry Polymer chemistry or macromolecular chemistry is a multidisciplinary science that deals with the chemical synthesis and chemical properties of polymers or macromolecules. . Each division has its niche, including the manufacture of base polymers, molding and extruding polymers, and fabrication/machining of polymer materials. This is further defined by thermoplastic and thermoset A polymer-based liquid or powder that becomes solid when heated, placed under pressure, treated with a chemical or via radiation. The curing process creates a chemical bond that, unlike a thermoplastic, prevents the material from being remelted. See thermoplastic. polymers.
TSE's Rubber Products Division manufactures thermoset elastomer (rubber) products that are compression, transfer or injection molded with or without inserts, extruded and wrap cured. These products are usually high performance rubber compounds specially formulated for certain properties or combinations of properties.

Noren Products has offered global thermal management cooling solutions for over 30 years. Products offered by Noren include Heat Pipe technology, the Heat Exchanger heat exchanger
Any of several devices that transfer heat from a hot to a cold fluid. In many engineering applications, one fluid needs to be heated and another cooled, a requirement economically accomplished by a heat exchanger. compact cabinet cooler, Thermal Pin heat conductors and Elevator elevator, in machinery
elevator, in machinery, device for transporting people or goods from one level to another. The term is applied to the enclosed structures as well as the open platforms used to provide vertical transportation in buildings, large ships, oil coolers.
Thermal Pin heat conductors are offered by Noren Products for injection molding injection molding
A manufacturing process for forming objects, as of plastic or metal, by heating the molding material to a fluid state and injecting it into a mold. , extrusion, thermoset/rubber and platens. Thermal Pin heat conductors reduce cycle time, improve part quality, upgrade old molds, fix damaged molds, and cut mold and molding costs.
Thermal Pin heat conductors cool molds fast to reduce cycle time. They always transfer heat toward the cooler end. In small cores, users can cool to a water channel in areas that had previously been inaccessible inaccessible Surgery adjective Unreachable; referring to a lesion that unmanageable by standard surgical techniques–eg, lesions deep in the brain or adjacent to vital structures–ie, not accessible. See Accessible. to water cooling Water cooling is a method of heat removal from components. As opposed to air cooling, water is used as the heat transmitter. Water cooling is commonly used for cooling internal combustion engines in automobiles and electrical generators. . In solid cores, users can draw heat from the plastic to the mold base or to remote water channels. Most solid core applications pay for themselves in four to twelve weeks.
In blow molding, the hollow Thermal Pin heat conductor uniformly cools the end of the blow pin. Hollow Thermal Pin heat conductors evenly cool the necks of blow molded bottles. In mold cooling applications, Noren's Thermal Pin heat conductor design guide illustrates how the product can reduce cycle time.
Noren Products has taken heat pipe concepts and adapted them to cool plastic molds. Traditionally, heat pipes have been used to transfer a steady heat load. More than a decade ago, Noren designed Thermal Pin heat conductors to function under cyclic cyclic /cyc·lic/ (sik´lik) pertaining to or occurring in a cycle or cycles; applied to chemical compounds containing a ring of atoms in the nucleus.
