  • During the past decade, increased awareness about climate change has led to more research in development of eco-friendly rubber formulations. Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is an analytical technique that can be used to provide insight on how these new alternatives compare to conventionally manufactured rubber compounds. In this study, we present example investigations that show some of the challenges in developing these new formulations, and how dynamic mechanical analysis can help in understanding the relationship between viscoelastic properties of the final rubber product and its performance.
