Andreas Neumann GmbH is a German company specializing in braiding products for technical and private use applications. For a specific application in leisure and sport, they needed a way to increase resistance of elastic braids to cyclic stress. Up to that point, the company was using extruded latex rubber, but it did not provide the durability necessary for this application.
Working with the Andreas Neumann team, we tested several specialty elastic recipes based on synthetic Polyisoprene.
We developed a custom solution which we named “The Perfect Stretch.” It increased the cyclic resistance at 100% elongation by 66%, and enabled our customer to capture their specific market with a suitable end product.
