RCMA Polymer

RCMA Polymer

The Division combines the heritage and experiences of our global teams in Asia, Europe and America to deliver comprehensive and end-to-end solutions to the polymer industry. We offer natural rubber, latex, synthetic rubber, chemicals and reclaimed rubber, laboratory and certifications services, which are backed by our strategically located warehouses and experienced logistics teams, to offer seamless supply chain solutions that meet the needs of our clients globally.

 

With a fully equipped natural rubber latex laboratory in the Netherlands, the division expanded our service offerings with the acquisition of Momentum Technologies International (now renamed RCMA Americas, Inc.) in 2013.

 

RCMA Americas Laboratory Services has a 7,000 sqft global testing laboratory and is accredited ISO/IEC 17025:2005 by A2LA. The laboratory is also accredited and certified by CRRC (Independent Test Lab), Miami-Dade County and Energy Star (Roofing Materials). The laboratory holds membership of various governing bodies such as ASTM, Asphalt Institute, Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association, etc. We offer a range of 3rd party testing and development services for asphalt paving, roofing, adhesives, coatings, plastics and rubber applications.

 

In September 2015, the RCMA Group made a strategic investment of a 50% shareholding in Syarikat Chuan Lee Rubber Sdn. Bhd in Pahang, Malaysia. This investment broadens RCMA Rubber’s capabilities to offer standard Malaysian rubber grades, compounding and reprocessing services to our clients globally.
