Elastomers compounding is a complex science of selecting and blending the optimum combination of
elastomers and additive ingredients that meet the performance, processing, environmental and cost
requirements for rubber goods used in the industry. Through the strength of our supplier partners, we have
strengthened our presence in this industry and continue to expand our product line offering which
currently includes: carbon black, elastomers, precipitated silica, vulcanization additives, plasticizers,
resins, antioxidants, fillers, accelerators, insoluble sulfur and many more raw materials important to rubber compounders. Our dedication to the rubber industry has allowed us to grow in this market and we
continue to view this as a strategically important segment for Quadra.
