Mark Tool and Elite Elastomers entered into a joint venture focused on the research, development, and end-use application for complete elastomeric
subsea high temperature thermal insulation systems which can be installed via three methods to include S-Lay, J-Lay, and Reel-Lay.
Key statement: A methodology for pro ducing modified nanoclays which, when added to an elastomer, provide elastomeric
nanocomposites with improved aging, rheological and mechanical properties and which can be devoid of, or containing low amount of, a filler such as carbon black, is provided.
Bayer MaterialScience LLC has introduced Baytec Sil 100, a 100% solids silicone elastomeric
coating for protection of roofs and other architectural surfaces.
MUREX WELDING PRODUCTS is reminding users that Pressure Regulators and Flashback Arrestors contain elastomeric
components which deteriorate and cause the units to fail in service.
Tyco Electronics' Elastomeric
Technologies[TM] solderless component assemblies use the company's STAX[TM] elastomeric
surface-to-surface silicone rubber compression connectors to provide a complete solderless interconnect assembly for high-volume portable device OEMs.
The new TPE compounds fall into two broad categories--block copolymers where a rigid phase is dispersed in an elastic matrix, and those where an elastomeric
phase is dispersed in a rigid matrix, says Martin Mack, Bertorff's v.p.
Currently, there are three 100% solids coating systems available: elastomeric
polyurea and rigid polyurethane.
The other is the RB polymer sealing surface bonded to an elastomeric
The Arcusaflex couplings feature elastomeric
silicone-rubber elements which are suited for the high temperature applications, the company said.
Key statement: The invention is concerned with the field of polymer chemistry and relates to elastomeric
materials as usable, for example, as an inner liner material for motor vehicle tires, and to the use thereof.
