"ENA performs both Primary and Secondary rubber compounding in-house, unique to low-cost region rubber manufacturers"
Not all rubber molded parts are created equal. Rubber molded parts may "look and feel" the same from one supplier to the next, but they can differ greatly on "quality" and "consistency" of the rubber material. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of rubber molders worldwide, and there can be significant differences in their parts with regard to quality and consistency of the materials, especially over multiple shipments, through time, to the same customer. ENA Advanced Rubber Technologies has an industry reputation for their advanced material compounding capabilities and delivering consistent, reliable parts every time - all the time. Our compounding practices, coupled with our quality control procedures, ensure this.
ENA is perhaps the most advanced compounder of rubber in Asia. We have a major competitive edge in that we provide both Primary and Secondary compounding "in-house", where a majority of the competition outsources this function. This is a major quality control as well as costs savings advantage to ENA which is passed forward to the customer. We do not outsource our compounded materials and buy from the "lowest cost bidder". We control and formulate our rubber in house from our own imported raw material, and we provide lot traceability for every part. In addition, we are able to provide highly custom solutions to your particular application. ENA has achieved primary compounding certifications from the most well-known material producers and additive suppliers worldwide. All raw rubber material is imported from Taiwan, Europe and the United States. We do not purchase raw material from China or other LCR suppliers.
ENA is very knowledgeable of advanced compounds and exceeds most common certifications and approvals including, but not limited to: UL, ASTM, RoHs, FDA, NSF, plus many more. Our raw rubber is imported into Asia and meets the North American Standards ASTM, National Standard GB, Japan standard JIS and European standard DIN. Imported raw rubber is strictly evaluated and testing during the importation process. Stringent control procedures are also in place throughout all stages of compounding to production. Each batch of rubber is monitored and controlled using the Vulcanization Curve.
In addition to compounding, ENA can reverse engineer your existing rubber parts and analyze them in our chemistry labs to determine the exact rubber formulations/compounds. ENA maintains a staff of highly qualified chemists and engineers at all factories.
Finally, ENA's ability to perform both Primary and Secondary compounding allows us to respond very quickly to FA (First Article) parts and prototypes. We are proud to boast the shortest lead times in the industry, and our in-house compounding capability is one of the reasons why this remains true today.
