Project: Mayor duration of vehicle parts through the development of thermal conductive rubber

Acronym MarathonR (Reference Number: 11303)
Duration 01/11/2017
Project Topic The consortium will increase the fatigue resistance of natural rubber (NR) and EPDM parts for the transport sector, leading to operation lifetime improvements of up to 60%. MarathonR will improve the thermal conductivity of rubber formulations by employing a novel additive (a combination of functionalized metal oxides and functionalized graphene). It will improve thermal dissipation, leading to a reduction in operating temperature, and thus higher fatigue resistance.
