Carbon Black Loading and Process Conditions: Optimizing Rubber Formulations with a Laboratory Intermeshing Mixer
The extrusion of rubber compounds is often a multistep process including mixing, milling, extrusion and curing. This adds complexity to the job of a formulator trying to optimize formulations and processing conditions. Large scale process changes can first be replicated on a laboratory-scale to do so in a timely and cost-effective way. This webinar explores the effect of intermeshing and tangential lab scale mixers on the evaluation and properties of rubber formulations. We will then demonstrate how to fine tune rubber processing parameters and carbon black fill rates on the lab scale. ASTM D2230 will be used to assess processability.

Matt Luebbers, Ph.D.
Sales Engineer @C.W. Brabender Instruments, Inc.
Matt Luebbers is trained as a Chemical Engineer having earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology and his Master’s Degree and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. His work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Akron in the Polymer Science department catalyzed a career in product development and materials characterization. Matt’s professional experiences first include work in an early-stage start up company developing engineered, inorganic adsorbents for treating wastewater. Subsequently, he worked as an Applications Scientist for a global leader in chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) which included formulation and application development and the qualification of new raw material sources. Matt then worked in the medical device industry where he formed and staffed a materials science department to support product development and quality initiatives of an established leader in the enteral feeding market.
