Materials Used

Rubbers or elastomers are mixed with various chemicals in order to provide the reinforcement and curing ingredients required to produce the physical properties necessary for the service conditions.

A wide choice of basic polymers (rubbers) is available.  Many of these rubbers can be blended or compounded to obtain the desired properties based on the application.
