Industrial plant for rubber.
In 1982, Shanghai Chint Rubber Factory introduced a second-hand equipment production line with an annual output of 500,000 passenger radial tires from Metzler, Germany. With the strong support of Beijing Rubber Industry Research and Design Institute and other units, the "Pull back" brand car radial tires were successfully put into production and successfully passed the certification to supply the Santana car of the Shanghai Volkswagen Automobile Plant.
In 1985, the research and development results of the new technology of butadiene rubber production won the 1985 "Special Prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award".
In 1989, the Ministry of Chemical Industry issued the "Measures for the Implementation of the "Determination and Implementation of the State Council's Current Industrial Policy Points (Trial)" by the Ministry of Chemical Industry, proposing that the current internal chemical industry development sequence is the agricultural support chemical industry, the raw material chemical industry, the fine chemical industry, and the rubber processing industry. .
In 1993, the domestic large-scale domestic radial tire production line was completed and put into operation in Shandong Rongcheng Rubber Factory.
Henan Tire Factory's "Eighth Five-Year Plan" national key scientific and technological project "Large-scale Construction Machinery Tires" passed the national acceptance and started mass production, and the product quality reached the international advanced level.
In 1995, the Yanshan Petrochemical MTBE cracking polymerization-grade isobutylene production plant was completed and put into operation, which provided an economical and reliable source of raw materials for the production of butyl rubber; in December 1999, the 30,000-ton/year butyl rubber production plant introduced with Italian PI technology was completed and put into operation Since then, the situation that my country's butyl rubber is totally dependent on imports has ended.
In 1996, Yanshan Petrochemical built a 10,000-ton grade solution polymerized styrene butadiene rubber (SSBR) production plant, which was the first solution polymerization styrene butadiene rubber plant in my country.
In 1999, Tianjin Tire Company developed large-scale agricultural radial tires in accordance with market demand. Using domestic technology, after nearly a year of research and trial production, the first "Dolphin" brand 12.4R28 agricultural radial tires were successfully rolled off the production line, a breakthrough for domestic agricultural radial tires. A new way has come out. By 2014, there were about 4 companies producing agricultural radial tires nationwide, with an output of 37,000.
In 2002, Shanghai Tire & Rubber (Group) Co., Ltd. Double Coin Truck Tire Co., Ltd. used the technology of radial truck tires to independently research and develop the first "Double Money" brand engineering machinery radial tire 14.00R24-20PR (tubeless), and started a domestic project. The pioneer of mechanical radial tires.
In 2008, Shandong Triangle Group Co., Ltd. and Tianjin Saixiang Technology Co., Ltd. jointly completed the giant engineering radial tire complete set of technology and equipment development project won the first prize of 2007 National Science and Technology Progress Award.
Lanzhou Petrochemical Company's 100,000-ton/year styrene butadiene rubber plant started to produce chemical materials. This is the largest scale of domestic production and is completely dependent on its own technology to build a styrene butadiene rubber plant.
my country’s first "Sanhuan" brand radial radial tires successfully passed various dynamic tests required by national standards and met the requirements for installation. my country has become the fourth country in the world capable of developing, manufacturing and testing radial radial tires. In the same year, a domestically-produced aircraft equipped with tires of this specification made its first flight.
In 2009, the styrene-butadiene rubber production plant constructed by Sinopec Qilu Branch was put into operation. The total annual production capacity of the entire plant’s styrene-butadiene rubber plant reached 230,000 tons. It was the largest styrene-butadiene rubber production base in China at that time. The plant all adopted domestic technology. .
