Rubber Composites

Rubber is a polymer available in natural as well as in synthetic forms which has a wide range of applications in various industries. Rubber alone does not provide the desirable properties and the properties required for diverse applications have led to the incorporation of graphitic materials into the rubber composites. JKR has developed technologies for the synthesis of various improved forms of graphitic materials and has successfully executed the incorporation of them into natural rubber matrix to deliver rubber composites with improved mechanical and thermal properties.

A Multispectral Camera

JKR has developed a multispectral camera capable of capturing images in the wavelength range of 330nm – 1100nm. The camera unit contains an embedded computing device capable of controlling the aperture, focus, filters, and capable of running image processing without the need for an external computer. It allows wireless connectivity and has a small form factor. The images can be used to identify features or abnormalities of an object or a structure.
