Bechem: There are more and more demands being made on product quality, which applies just as much to the rubber industry as it does to others. This has also led to an increase in awareness about quality. This is why a method of representatively analyzing an entire compound is now indispensable for producers. In this way, we have created an entirely new standard of process control.
Kaempfer: Let’s think about this a bit more: Up until now, customers have not been calculating the coefficients of variation with regard to their compounds, which is a measurement that allows them to draw conclusions about a compound’s homogeneity. Customers’ customers just haven’t been demanding it. But because Rhenowave® measures representatively, we are now able to introduce this new parameter of quality control, and thus provide the customer with a unique selling point.
