British Rubber Producers Research Association
By Daphne Knott
The British Rubber Producers’ Research Association, located in Tewin Road, was founded in 1938 to undertake research into the fundamental structures of rubber. As motoring became more popular, the laboratories were at the forefront of developing testing methods to evaluate tyre efficiency.
In 1974, the laboratory moved to Brickendonbury.
These pictures, taken by Colin Bell, show Dr Peter Allen in his laboratory.
