List of Elastomers

Brief Information of Elastomers

ABS Powder

ABS with High Rubber Content, has single particle size that disperse more effectively into polymer matrix to form composite alloy and lead to better properties. It imparts excellent impact properties, increase heat resistance properties and also improve strength of recycle material.

Acsium®

Acsium® (chlorosulfonated polyethylene) is another new generation of ‘super mid-performance’ elastomer for high temperature dynamic applications specifically for toothed and V-belts used in automotive applications. Acsium® is suitable for service conditions between – 30°C and peaking up to 150°C, resistance to oil & grease and outperformed durability compared to that of HNBR at lower cost.

Amplify

Amplify (functional polymers) gives added functionality and enhanced performance for compounding/polymer modification, thermoplastic powder coatings, adhesives/ tie layers, and more.

DJ Silicone

NE grades of silicone rubber offer ease of processabilities, good physical and mechanical properties with high temperature resistance up to 200ºC. Standard NE grades are available in natural translucent color silicone masterbatch vulcanisable under heat with addition of catalyst.  from 20 A to 80 A hardnesses suitable for standard, general purpose molding and extrusion. Special requirement of NE grades can be custom-made for fire resistance, high temperature resistance and high voltage insulation applications. Latest addition of NE grades are fumed silica series giving high transparency, excellent physical and mechanical properties, non-yellowing effect with good processabilities for industrial and consumer goods applications.

Engage™

Engage™ (polyolefin elastomers) is an ideal modifier that bridge the gap between synthetic rubber and plastics-engineered to process like a thermoplastic and perform like a flexible, tough elastomer.

Hypalon®

A ‘super mid-performance’ elastomer with excellent resistance to heat, oil & grease, weather resistance and UV stable. Hypalon® (chlorosulfonated polyethylene) can be operative under wide temperature range – 40°C to 150°C, colourable and colour stable, good electrical properties and formulatable for adhesion to a variety of substrates.

Infuse™

Infuse™ (Olefin Block Copolymer) exhibits unique properties versus Polyolefin elastomers and plastomers. It offers outstanding flexibility – high temperature resistance balance, excellent elastic recovery, excellent compression set at room and elevated temperature and improved abrasion resistance.

MBS Powder

MBS is High Rubber product graft copolymer of methyl methacrylate, butadiene and styrene, impact modifier for PVC, PC and Polyester. It imparts excellent properties and good surface finish and also improve strength of recycle material.

Neoprene

Invented in 1930s, Neoprene (polychloroprene) is a mid-performance elastomer with well-balance of performance properties. Neoprene has temperature resistance up to 125°C, oil and grease resistance, chemical resistance, low compression set and do not support any fire combustion.

Nordel™

In the 1990s, Dow made waves with NORDEL™ (ethylene propylene diene monomer) IP hydrocarbon rubber products that are produced with patented INSITE™ catalyst technology, setting new, higher standards in EPDM performance. NORDEL™ IP improves yield, reduces scrap and provides outstanding polymer cleanliness.

PTFE

PTFE (Anti Drip) graft polymerization with Styrene and Acrylonitrile, a nano anti drip, offers good dispersion, good mechanical properties and improve surface finish. It comes in free flowing powder that is easy to store and handle.

Tyrin™

TYRIN™, chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) offers excellent flexibility and resistance to ignition, chemicals, low temperatures and weathering. Around the world, TYRIN CPE resins offer superior performance in many thermoplastic and elastomer applications. For example:

  • Thermoplastic applications – features cost effective impact modification for vinyl siding and window profiles and for PVC pipes, electrical connectors and fittings.
  • Asia-Pacific markets – used as an impact modifier and flame retardant additive in ABS compounds for injection mold computer housings.
  • Elastomer applications – offers cost-effective chemical, heat and flame-retardant properties in automotive, wire and cable, and general rubber applications.

Vamac®

Vamac® is an ethylene acrylic elastomer (AEM) with high performance properties used for automotive, industrial seals, gaskets, molded & extruded rubber articles. Excellent oil and chemical resistances, high temperature resistance up to 175ºC, good compression set resistance and low temperature flexibility are the general performance characteristics of Vamac® as denoted by the assignment of EG under ASTM 2000.

Versify™

VERSIFY™ (plastomers and elastomers) are a versatile family of specialty propylene-ethylene copolymers produced with a revolutionary catalyst in combination with Dow’s proprietary INSITE™ Technology and Solution Process.

The unique molecular architecture of these new specialty polymers provides films, fibers, and molded parts with an outstanding combination of excellent optics, sealing and hot tack performance, plus elasticity, flexibility, softness and compatibility in blends.

Vicom

Genuine high performance VICOM fluoroelastomer compound can be custom-manufactured to meet the stringent requirement of physical and mechanical properties. Typical application of VICOM will be in automotive, chemical processing, oil and gas industries, aircraft and aerospace engineering as bonded seal, gaskets, O-rings, sheeting and tubes.

Viton®

Viton® (fluoroelastomer) is the high-performance elastomer of choice in advanced fuel sealing with excellent resistance to extremes heat, chemicals, fuel mixtures and fuel additives. Viton®’s service temperature can be from – 40°C up to the extreme of 225°C, with excellent dynamic properties, low permeation rates and low compression set.
