In the rubber industry, plasticizers for rubber compounds mainly consist of petroleum derivatives. Consequently, the rubber industry is in constant competition with many petroleum consumers. This competition places an economic strain on rubber companies such as HEXPOL RUBBER COMPOUNDING L.L.C. In order to alleviate this strain, natural oil alternatives to petroleum plasticizers are of novel research interest and are investigated in this thesis project.
