 Rubber Research Department

  General Information :-

Rubber Group is a well-known leading center for rubber research in Iran. Areas of current and future research include various aspects of rubber processing and compounding. The use of computer simulation especially the application of FEM to rubber processing and products and also the development of highly specific compounds for complicated applications comprise the basic theme of our research projects. A significant part of the research undertaken by Rubber Group is industrially sensitive and financially supported by several Iranian rubber and tire manufactures
