Sumitomo Rubber develops reduced odour NR

Sumitomo Rubber said it has now developed reduced odour natural rubber that emits ‘significant’ less odour.

The company , with its proprietary raw material processing technique, achieves a significant reduction in odour by suppressing the breakdown of odour-causing non-rubber components (such as proteins and lipids) that are found within natural rubber in its raw material state.

“We believe that the establishment of this new technique represents a major step toward solving longstanding odour issues not just at natural rubber processing plants, but also at tyre factories and other sites where natural rubber is handled,” said Sumitomo Rubber.
