Frequently Asked Questions
- What is rubber?
Today, the word rubber denotes many synthetic materials with elastic properties in addition to natural rubber. Rubber has the ability to cross-link under heat and high pressure. This process provides rubber with the desired and final form. This rubber-specific cross-linking ability is called vulcanization. This process happens only once and it cannot be reversed.
- Is it new rubber or a rubber regenerate?
Vulcanized rubber cannot be melted and newly pressed. It can only be broken up with a high amount of energy. Regenerates come mainly from broken up old tires. They have little binding strength left (ability to crosslink). In order to re-shape them, bonding agents must be used. Regenerates are primarily suitable for relative hard, large-volume components.
- Is it natural rubber or a tire mixture?
Huber Technik uses only new tire rubber, with a minimum of 90 % of it having not been vulcanized (new rubber). Tire mixtures contain valuable additives, which assure age-resistance. Lower priced natural rubber mixtures do not contain those stabilizers. Therefore, the influence of light and air (ozone) easily makes them brittle. A high specific weight (>1.2) is an indicator for a high amount of fillers (chalk) in the rubber compound. Fillers make the compound heavier and cheaper. A high amount of filler is not an advantage for a product’s elasticity and durability.
- What does wear-and-tearresistance mean?
To determine wear-and-tear ability of rubber products, tear resistance, stretching ability at the breaking point, and abrasions are primarily examined. These criteria are clearly superior in new rubber. Why do you need a inner liner of fabric? Coverings made of high-quality new rubber must not be very thick in order to offer elasticity, comfort, and durability. The fiber insert made of polyamide polyester stabilizes surface coverings and minimizes rubber-specific stretching. In thin surface covers, the fiber must carry the load. The rubber provides solely a protective surface and wear-and-tear protection.
