MERL, Materials Engineering Research Laboratory Limited.

MERL, Materials Engineering Research Laboratory Limited of Hertford, England, has started a joint industry project to develop an improved understanding of the durability of rubber/metal bonding, especially in the light of changes underway in the industry due to environmental concerns to reduce usage of chlorinated solvents and move towards aqueous based adhesive systems. A number of companies in the rubber industry have joined the project, including Lord, Chemicals Group of Erie, PA, Dunlop Oil Marine and Hutchinson/paulstra. The project will establish a new accelerated aging methodology based on environmental exposures with a realistic mechanical loading.
