The Brabender measuring system for determining the density of rubber compounds for use within production-related incoming goods and quality control.

Your advantages

  • Efficient: Rapid measurement, no peripherals, no auxiliary media
  • Smart design: Ergonomic control panel, integrated balance
  • Robust: Designed for demanding environmental conditions
  • Precise: User-independent test execution
  • Ready2Use: Easy operation with browser-based MetaBridge software

Density is an important process-relevant parameter in rubber production and correlates with properties such as the degree of crosslinking or the hardness of the elastomer under consideration. The determination of density is therefore of particular importance for both formulation development and continuous production-accompanying quality control. The Brabender ElaTest enables reliable and reproducible determination of the density of non-vulcanized, i.e. non-crosslinked, rubbers and rubber compounds.

Reliable raw material control

  • Direct use in the production environment
  • Reference value comparison with alarm function for quality and incoming goods control
  • Correlation: Statistical evaluation of test results
  • User-defined method definition
  • DAkkS accredited calibration (optional)
