Historical records show the first Olympic Games were held in 776 BC and there is even evidence of competitive running dating back to 1829 BC. However, the popularity of sport as a form of exercise and hobby has increased significantly in recent years.
This has led to drastic developments in the design of the running shoe, with those partaking in the sport constantly seeking improvements that will help to reduce injuries or improve their performance.
Manufacturers now take into account the movement and anatomy of the foot while running and seek to produce an end product that combines comfort, style and speed.
Robinson Brothers provides chemical components that are utilised by some of the world's largest companies and designs featuring our technology can be found in high street stores and running tracks across the globe.
It has become a key priority for these manufacturers to ensure their products are as 'green' as possible, limiting their impact on the environment by ensuring that as much as possible can safely be recycled.
Robac Technology's AS100 accelerator is utilised during the vulcanisation of the rubber for the soles used on running shoes and because it produces a clean vulcanisation and does not leave behind any residues, it is considered to be much more environmentally friendly than previous alternatives.
Robinson Brothers accelerators are used in a wide variety of rubber components from running shoes to bicycle tyres.
