Written by world-renowned experts, this work describes the analytical techniques used to discover which materials and processes were used to produce a particular vulcanized rubber compound from a combination of raw rubber, chemicals, and pigments. This unique and comprehensive text includes discussion of polymer identification, carbon black percent calculation, volatile separation, and ultimately the reengineering of the chemical formulation of an unknown rubber product. It makes an invaluable reference for scientists and engineers wishing to produce comparative benchmark information, discover formulations used throughout the industry, improve product performance, and shorten the product development cycle.
