Rubber Filler

garnet additives and fillers
Garnet as an inorganic filler in rubber can increase the weight and viscosity of rubber, as well as its physical strength and vibration dampening properties. For these reasons and more, manufacturers are turning to it as a performant solution in creating high-demand rubber products.

How Garnet Impacts Rubber

A micro-powder derived from Garnet minerals is added as an inorganic filler to rubber. Its unique chemical profile, characterized by wear resistance and chemical inertness, means that garnet powder as a rubber additive brings much needed elasticity and resilience to rubber products.

Garnet-reinforced rubber also has more performant tensile strength and is more resistant to tearing when compared to rubber reinforced with other additives, such as calcium carbonate.
