Recipe Making :
A predefined procedure for R&D is followed by BRI’s rubber techno-expert team for making a quality formulation, to ensure that the end product should be stable enough and serve its purpose (resistance & working temperature) for the period it is specified for.
Rubber compound recipe includes the following :
- Polymer types and their quantification;
- Oils, softeners, fragments of accelerators, antidegradants, waxes, processing admixtures and free sulphur;
- Sulphur content;
- Carbon Black type & content;
- Inorganic compound ingredients;
- Accelerators and Antidegradants;
- Stiffening materials.
There may be chances that while large-scale production, there may be powder loss, which may lead to error in executing a perfect formulator batch. Thus each compound is tested and recorded under a document called Rubber Compound Analysis.
Immediately all the minor changes are made to the formulation, that recipe is documented for production department. This full recipe is then broken down to chemical department & rubber room department. Weighing each and every item per lot then starts actual production.
Raw Material Issue Slip :
BRI’s Raw material department issues all the materials, which are used per shift by production department. All entries are made under RMIS to ensure that total of all batch produced and total raw materials issued matches. Any error, if found, is crosschecked immediately to rectify until the stock is matched to actual with physical.
Production Process :
The control of the manufacturing of high quality rubber products is a sum of numerous control factors. BRI’s Production Department expertise is to execute and control :
- Compounds & their mixing
- Handling of reinforcing materials
- Rubber processing systems, i.e.
- Fabrication of different components
- Molding techniques
