Welcome to my GrafCompounder Website

This website is all about "GrafCompounder 4.0," an Artificial Intelligence (AI) based PC-program. It allows the prediction of recipes & properties of polymer compounds using a compound database. This tool is not only for rubber compounds! Of course it can handle TPE, Thermoplastic, Polyurethane or any other compounds as long as the formulas are normalized on their polymer.

The uniqueness of this tool lies in its ability to calculate and thus predict a compound formula with its properties. For the prediction, criteria can be used by free choice or according to a specification under a single condition: The criteria must be within the minimum and maximum values of the ingredients & properties in the recipe data collection. The data collection itself is subject to very few restrictions (See FAQs for more details).

Working successfully with statistic experimental design in rubber compounding and processing, I found it difficult to accept that compounds stored away in databases could be used neither in further compound development / optimization nor for a quick evaluation of options like a response to a customer request for example.

To use a compound database in this way, a software tool is needed other than a simple search tool. In the past several attempts were made to use an unorganized, historically grown compound database as a useful resource for compound development, but failed. GrafCompounder opens the possibility of a database query - specifically a multi target query - by calculation of a compound formulation according to all targets, which can either be ingredient or property values. The result of this calculation is a formulation that either fulfills all specifications or provides the best compromise. Unlike common AI (Artificial Intelligence) programs, the data used for the calculation can be traced back to the original data set, which allows to discard the data set or to eliminate errors in the database.

GrafCompounder shows an easy and fast way to analyze a formula database and finally to simulate and predict a recipe from any compound database.

Please visit my personal website: Hans-Joachim-Graf, to learn about my activities like Consultancy, Training and Education in Rubber Compound Development & Processing. Special trainings provided about the usage of GrafCompounder alone or in combination with Statistic Experimental Design (DoE) in rubber development, processing and manufacturing.


SIMULATION OF RUBBER COMPOUND FORMULA? You think, that is impossible?


RELIABLE DATA, EXPERIENCE AND SOFTWARE is needed to successfully simulate a compound formula with its properties.
It is a common problem in all type of simulation: Without interpretation and analysis, only nice data and graphs are produced. With expert knowledge simulation becomes the developers "workbench".
The Grafcompounder 4.0 has been released June 2021.
