ALTTRAN announces the launch of a new subsidiary, ALTTRAN Technical Services (“ATS”), LLC. ATS will focus on contract laboratory testing for the rubber industry, while ALTTRAN remains focused on rubber compounding and mixing.
According to David Topliff, President of ALTTRAN, “The need for reliable data and the expertise to interpret that data has never been greater. Chemists and technical managers are still in short supply. Many companies need a partner to help solve production issues or to confirm the performance of raw materials and final products.”
Carlee McCowin, Technical Manager for ATS, has directed the addition of new equipment and staff to keep up with the increasing volume of technical projects. “We have installed new test equipment to enhance our capabilities for low temperature testing. The latest addition is our new Admet universal test machine that has an environmental chamber that can cool or heat a sample so the test method will match up to the exposure temperature for a specific rubber application”.
ATS has conducted lab studies for clients that include raw material suppliers and rubber product manufacturers.
