JSC "Sibkabel" (included in the "holding Cable Alliance", uniting cable assets UMMC) has purchased a modern mixer cost about 3 million rubles.
the New equipment in the laboratory rubber will allow to improve current and develop new formulations of rubber compounds used for insulation and sheath for cable products. The result will expand the product line and improve the quality of the finished product.
Rubber compounds consist of 10-16 ingredients including rubber, accelerators, vulcanizing agents group, stabilizers, activators, softeners, plasticizers and fillers. Depending on their composition and proportions of the rubber mixture acquires the desired characteristics: strength, elasticity, hardness, wear resistance and others.
Previously, the process of preparation of rubber mixtures was carried out on a laboratory mill. The temperature and the gap between the rolls was adjusted manually – the result is the same the composition of the rubber compound can have different properties that affect the test results.
"Now all data is recorded on the control panel that greatly simplifies the hardware and minimizes the human factor. In addition, the opportunity to explore a greater volume of material," – said the head of lab Tatyana were.
After mixing the rubber mixture is passed through rollers, which are made plates for testing on various parameters. In an average month in the laboratory of "Sibkabelja" made about 13 of rubber compounds, the General nomenclature includes more than 30 basic recipes.
"today, "Sibkabel" fully covers the needs in rubber compounds of all three cable factories "Holding Cable Alliance". In addition, we produce rubber for other industries. Own production of this material started more than 4 years ago, facilitates the process of quality control and allows to solve the problem of import substitution", - said Director of JSC "Sibkabel" Alexey Join.
