The industrial plant has highly qualified workers and a production capacity of 60,000 metric tons per year. It features the size reduction, cleaning and homogenizing process, for which it employs the Slab Cutter, PreBreaker, and Coarse Pelletisers machines. It also features the rubber drying process.

GRUPO INTROSA’s quality management system is certified and registered under ISO 9001:2008 Standard
According to the quality standards, characteristics, such as initial Wallace plasticity, the plasticity retention index, Mooney viscosity, dirt content, ashes percentage, nitrogen content, volatile material percentage and the Lovibond color index are analyzed in our laboratory.Based on these results the rubber or natural rubber is released for warehouse storage of finished products in bulk or palletized for shipment to America or Europe.

 

 

RAW MATERIAL

INTROSA´S solid raw material comes from the rubber plantations of our suppliers, associates, non associates, big and small producers. When the raw material, in the form of natural rubber, is received in our plant, is weighed, sampled and inspected. Afterwards, it goes through a homogenization process to ensure quality and uniformity in the finished product.

The job of reducing the coagulated latex into crumbs in order to optimize product drying and to free it from foreign material is done by the Slabcutter PreBreaker and the Extruders or Pelletisers machines. Final homogenization and washing is done simultaneously on water transport troughs. Foreign material is trapped by traps during this process.

Before entering the next phase (the drying process), Mooney Controlled viscosity natural rubbers receive a stabilizer application. During the sub-processes, our production staff physically evaluates the conditions and characteristics of the raw material.

According to the quality standards, characteristics, such as initial Wallace plasticity, the plasticity retention index, Mooney viscosity, dirt content, ashes percentage, nitrogen content, volatile material percentage and the Lovibond color index are analyzed in our laboratory.
