Polymer or elastomer blending is a valuable technique at optimizing a set of performance properties the design engineer is working to meet. Blending is used extensively in tire engineering. It is used in tread compounding, tire sidewall compounds, and many times in the tire innerliner. This enables the engineer to achieve what in most instances is a satisfactory compromise between conflicting design requirements. The important aspects to blending is polymer compatibility, setting up effective mixing cycles to achieve the needed level of dispersion, and in the tire before vulcanization, control of compounding ingredient migration across component interfaces.
Speaker: Dr. Brendan Rodgers, based in Austin Texas, has spent 42 years working in the tire and rubber industry with both The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and ExxonMobil. He has worked on a broad range of tire and industrial rubber products including hydraulic hose and conveyor belts, materials technology, and product design. He has had work assignments here in the United States, China, Ireland, Italy, and Luxembourg, working on original equipment automobile tires, truck tires, industrial rubber products, and new tire materials technologies. He is the originator of a broad range of patents in tire and rubber technology and many industry publications including editor of the text, Rubber Compounding, Chemistry and Applications, and the text, Tire Engineering, both published by CRC Press. Brendan has a PhD in chemical engineering from The Queen’s University of Belfast in Northern Ireland, where he studied thermodynamics, heat transfer through large rubber sections, and vulcanization kinetics. He has a Master’s degree in Polymer Technology also from The Queen’s University, and a BSc in Biological Chemistry from The University of Ulster.
