Innovation that makes a material difference​

Our technical experts are amongst the best in the industry. The development of advanced rubber compounds requires precision, a deep understanding of the mechanical and chemical properties of the high grade raw materials employed, and a thorough understanding of application potential and customer requirements.​

a material difference

Advanced Rubber Compounding

There are approx. 30 classes of organic elastomers on the market today, available in various grades. Our advanced rubber compounds use high grade raw materials as a starting point. Our experienced experts create an almost infinite range of combinations as they mix in reinforcements, additives, cross-linkers and plasticizers, depending upon the final attributes desired.

Rubber properties

Each organic elastomer presents precise characteristics which makes them more suitable for specific applications. Some examples are:

  • Natural (NR) and synthetic (IR) polysoprene, which exhibits exceptional mechanical properties and is ideal for dynamic uses.
  • Polybutyl (IIR) has very low gas permeability.
  • Ethylene-propylene copolymers (EPM) and ethylene-propylene-diene terpolymers (EPDM) have excellent properties of resistance to atmospheric agents and flexibility at low temperatures.
  • Polychloroprene (CR) exhibits excellent balance between mechanical properties and chemical and weather resistance.

applications

Advanced rubber compounds are used in applications that are exposed to tough working conditions such as:​

  • O-rings​
  • Bellows​
  • Membranes​
  • Frames​
  • Connectors​
  • Pipes & sleeves​
  • Anti-vibration elements​
  • Rugs, belts, ribbons​
  • Rollers​
  • Rubberized fabrics​
