dc.description.abstract Environmentally friendly, sustainable Natural Rubber (NR) based pylons that fulfil all the requirements of flexible pylons for harness horse racing tracks have been developed and commercialized. NR's inherent properties such as good resilience, impact resistance, flexibility and excellent overall performance has made it the ideal choice for this application. Use of non-leaching bio-based polymeric antioxidants have further increased the performance of rubber pylons. Cure characteristics, retention of mechanical properties after ageing at elevated temperatures and their non-staining properties are discussed. The development of rubber pylons has replaced the highly plasticized PVC pylons that become brittle in service losing its integrity due to plasticizer migration. The Product Accelerator (PA) model of engagement through local and international technology partners, industry partners and service providers has made it possible to take rubber pylons rapidly in to the global markets. en
