Arlanxeo Opens Rubber Technology Center in China
Yesterday, Arlanxeo, a global producer of synthetic elastomers, opened its state-of-the-art Rubber Technology Centre (RTC) in Changzhou, China. With the most advanced analytical testing capabilities to date, the RTC is located within the premises of the company’s EPDM plant, and is one of Arlanxeo's global rubber testing centers.
The RTC is made up of five different laboratories, to cater for mixing, rheological, physical testing, wet and analytical testing operations. The laboratories are currently led by two teams: the Rubber Mixing team and Rubber Testing team. These factors come together to make the RTC a holistic service and solutions provider, with the potential to act as a platform for technical exchanges. With the RTC, Arlanxeo now offers the most comprehensive rubber laboratory in China as it is capable of testing and mixing a great variety of rubber products. It also brings together the company’s testing, mixing and production capabilities under one roof in China.
“The consolidation of our testing and mixing capabilities and the production strength of the EPDM plant in China has not only made Arlanxeo well-placed to meet the challenges currently presented by the market situation, but also underscores the importance of China and the APAC region to Arlanxeo,” said Jan Paul, Chief Executive Officer of Arlanxeo.
