Ames Rubber expanded its electrostatic spray production facilities in Hamburg, NJ, and nearly doubled capacity for this technology. The electrostatic spray process applies layers of different types of elastomers in order to obtain unique coating characteristics. The company also created a department responsible for exploration of new processes and the development of elastomeric technology products. Areas of investigation will include development programs for compounds that retain resiliency in high-stress environments with high resistance to heat aging, and investigation of advanced production technologies for conventional elastomers.
