The rubber compound refers to the finished rubber material obtained by processing the mixture of raw rubber, fillers, and other chemicals. The chemicals are used optimize the properties of raw rubber to meet the given set of performance requirements. The chemicals such as polymers, fillers, antioxidants, curing agents, oil, and accelerators are used in various concentrations to produce compound rubber. They improve the physical properties, processability, prevent long-term deterioration, and affect the vulcanization of the rubber. The rubber compound is available in several types including silicone rubber, fluoro rubber, and butyronitrile rubber, and finds wide application in tire, and automotive industries.
The rubber compound market is growing at its rapid pace owing to rising demand from the automotive industry. The compound rubber is majorly used in the manufacturing of tires and seats of the automotive vehicles. It aids in providing abrasion resistance, chemical and grease resistance, excellent resistance to petroleum and oil, hot and cold temperature sustainability, high tear strength, and ozone resistance to the automotive rubber parts. The development in the automotive parts and introduction of electric vehicles will provide lucrative growth in the automotive industry, which will further propel the demand for rubber compounds.
