MarathonR

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

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.
