Elastomers and Plastomers

Multifunctional Performance

Combining mechanical performance, chemical resistance and flexibility

Flexibility and durability. Resilience and toughness. Stain resistance and colorability. These are just some of the many combinations that are possible with versatile elastomers, plastomers and silicone rubber materials. The molecular architecture of these materials offers valuable combinations of performance properties, such as excellent optics, sealing, elasticity, flexibility, water repellency, durability, electrical insulating qualities and much more.

The versatility of elastomers, plastomers and silicone rubber materials offers nearly unlimited capabilities for a wide range of applications and products. The many uses and benefits that these materials offer include:

  • Transportation – offering excellent coating and sealing capabilities for airbags as well as lightweighting, chemical and temperature resistance, flexibility and durability for moldings, seals, gaskets and more
  • Hygiene – offering excellent flexibility and softness that is comfortable and safe for elastic hygiene applications in baby, child and adult care products
  • Health – providing a transparent and lightweight alternative that is safer than glass for medical applications
  • Construction materials – offering excellent flexibility, weatherability, durability and heat welding capabilities for roofing products as well as shape control, adhesion and odorless properties for flooring products
  • Sports and recreation – enabling softness, shape retention and foamable capabilities for athletic footwear that provide shock absorption, comfort and durability while also helping to keep system costs down
  • Electrical and energy – optimizing delivery of energy with moldable and durable cable jacketing and insulation that have high reliability, watertightness for underground cables, low flammability and low energy loss
  • Kitchenware and consumer products – enabling kitchen utensils and housewares that are easy to wash, have excellent aging resistance and are usable in hot or cold temperatures; providing colorful grip surfaces for consumer products such as toothbrushes, hair brushes, razors and more
