Technical Capabilities

Whatever your technical requirements Eastland Compounding have the team to take your initial rubber compounding enquiry right through to production.

A dedicated Technical Sales Manager will deal both with your initial enquiry and manage your whole account, dealing with all aspects of your compound design and commercial requirements.

Following development and quotation, we can also visit if required, to discuss any aspects of your enquiry to ensure smooth transition from initial enquiry right through to a production batch. Our technical team are quickly able to develop the most cost effective solution to meet with your requirements.

Your enquiry will be dealt with efficiently and in a professional manner every step of the way. Eastland Compounding are both IATF16949 and ISO 9001 approved, and we are constantly striving to deliver products that are ‘Right First Time’.

New compounds are developed on-site in our dedicated Technical Centre. Our committed professional team will carry out an initial feasibility study. Following this and once the compound has been designed a laboratory batch can be mixed using our in-house 2 litre Banbury mixer. All testing requirements (for example, line call out testing to ASTM D200 or SAE J200) can then also be carried out using our extensive range of rubber testing equipment, and reports can be issued on request.

We value all our customers, aiming to develop strong partnerships to create the best environment for success, in every project, no matter how big or small.

Compound Testing

Eastland Compounding has a three stage approach to testing in order to ensure the continued high quality of all our bespoke rubber compounds.

This triangle comprises; day-to-day production testing, specific testing and development testing. Together, these create the Eastland Compounding ‘Triangle of Testing’.


Production Testing

Every batch of rubber compound produced by Eastland Compounding is tested meticulously for various properties, including; hardness and MDR testing for every ‘cures in’ batch.

Masterbatch compounds are tested for specific gravity and ML1+4.

Rubber packing temperature is also monitored to ensure conformance.

Specific Testing

In order to meet your bespoke rubber compounding needs specific testing can be completed upon request in our on-site Technical centre. Some examples of specific testing can be found below:

–          Tensile Testing

–          Tear Strength

–          Stress Relaxation

–          Heat ageing Testing

–          MDR Rheometer

–          Dispergrader for dispersion analysis

–          Compression Set

–          Volume Swells

–          Electrical Resistance

–          Abrasion Resistance

Once the rubber compound is made the high level of testing continues into post-production to ensure the compound reaches you in the best possible condition. All results are supplied on each certificate of conformance with every delivery.

Eastland Compounding can also utilise development testing in order to re-validate your compound.

Development Testing

In addition to day-to-day production testing and more specific testing, Eastland Compounding can leverage our technical capabilities in order to develop your rubber compound needs.

Development testing can be carried out in our on-site dedicated Technical Centre subject to your final design requirements.

Any development testing required can be achieved using the full scope of our on-site Technical Centre.
