Because of high performance compounds flexible chemical structure, our chemists can modify and improve its properties and enhance its performance to meet an array of functions in thousands of applications.  Working with our customers, we continue to discover new applications. 

High performance compounds are ideal for providing extended service life in harsh environments and applications, typical properties are:

  • Weathering/Age Resistance
  • Thermal Stability
  • UV Resistance
  • Low Volatility
  • Electrical Insulation Properties
  • Elasticity, Pliability and Flexibility
  • Microbial Resistance

applications

HEXPOL provides hundreds of custom and proven solutions high performance compounds used in markets such as:

  • Automotive and Transportation – High performance components are used in automotive (under the hood, interior and exterior); light (pickup) and heavy trucks; bus and rail mass transit; and aircraft to seal, insulate, and protect, providing safety, durability, and performance.
  • Energy, Oil and Gas – High performance components delivers longer service life, resistance to extreme temperatures and higher pressure in oil & gas applications, as well as superior UV protection for solar and wind energy components.
  • Building & Construction – Energy efficiency, structural protection, weatherproofing, window glazing and aesthetically pleasing attributes are some of the benefits provided by high performance compounds.
  • Wire & Cable – When flexibility, resistance to harsh environments, and insulating properties are paramount, high performance rubber is the right choice.
  • Medical Technology – High performance rubber is microbial resistant, clean, and traceable batch lot number, improving the performance of medical devices.
  • Other typical applications for High Performance Compounds are in Industrial Machinery, Agriculture, Technical Textiles, Printing & Labelling, Packaging, Household Appliances, Power Supplies, Food & Beverage, Sport and Leisure.
