The Department of Science and Technology IX's Rubber Testing Lab will showcase two interesting exhibits during the agency's Regional Science and Technology Week (RSTW) in Dipolog city this July.

The annual event will feature a myriad of S&T displays from different agencies and organizations working with the DOST.

The Rubber Testing Lab will bring to audiences exhibits called "Elephant Toothpaste" and "Hot Ice". The former - which is not actual toothpaste - involves the production of a large amount of thick, paste-like foam through a chemical reaction. The latter, involves "frozen", but in actuality, crystallized vinegar that produce heat through an exothermic process.

DOST IX's Rubber Testing Lab provides critical support mechanisms for enhancing the competitiveness of the Philippines' rubber industry.

 

To date, it has the capability to test for seven parameters, namely Dirt content, Nitrogen content, Ash, Volatile Matter, Plasticity Retention Index, Mooney Viscosity and Color - all of which, provide essential information on rubber crumb quality that indicate the handling and processing practices of a company.

To learn more about what DOST IX's Rubber Testing Lab and the RSTW has in store for you, visit the Zamboanga del Norte Convention and Sports Center on July 25-27.

The event is open to all interested individuals (S&T enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, students, researchers, inventors, innovators, professionals and the general public). ADMISSION IS FREE.
