Abstract : Considering the manufacture of neoprene covered wires and cables, it is readily evident that the curing operation presents opportunities for increased efficiency. Economies would result if it were possible to operate the continuous vulcanizing (CV) machines at higher speeds, and also if it were feasible to CV cure many of the large size cables currently being vulcanized by the more expensive lead press method. The first step in accomplishing this objective is the development of processing techniques which will permit the extrusion of very fast curing neoprene compounds. This paper presents information on attaining this objective. (Author)
