Special synthetic rubber is different from general rubber and it has special low temperature, aging, ablation and chemical resistance. The special rubbers are mainly HNBR, TPV, silicone rubber, fluoro rubber, fluorosilicone, ACM and others. Because of the special capacities, special rubbers become the key material in aerospace, military industry, electronic information, energy and many other areas. Here introduce some of the special rubbers.
HNBR is a high saturated rubber that add hydrogen to butadiene units on the segmer of NBR to improve the heat and aging resistance of NBR. The most important feature is that It can be used at 150℃ for long term and remain high physical and mechanical capacity. It can meet the requirements of high temperature and chemical resistance in vehicle, aerospace, oilfield and many other industries. Besides, it used as oil sealing in vehicle, parts of fuel oil system, driving belt, piston in drilling cage, sealing and damping material.
TPV is the abbreviation of thermoplastic vulcanizate, which is a kind of special thermoplastic elastomer. It’s produced by the dynamic vulcanizate of immiscible blends in thermoplast and elastomer. TPV has the similar capacity of thermoset hose and also has the processing speed of thermoplast. It’s light in weight, flexible and easy to process. It has wide working pressure range, stable quality and it can be recycle. More important, it has high cost performance. It’s widely used in vehicle parts, power construction, sealing and many other applications.
Silicone rubber is a special synthetic rubber that mixed the reinforce padding, functional padding and additive with linear polysiloxane and becomes a net structured elastomer after the vulcanization with heat and pressure. Silicone rubber has excellent temperature, weather, ozone and arc resistance as well as electrical insulating performance and physiologic inert. It’s used in industry, vehicle, electronic, construction, medicine, food and many other applications and becomes the necessary material in aerospace, military industry and intelligent industry.
OrientFlex supplies hose product made from such material, especially silicone rubber which is one of our main products. All of our silicone hoses are of the best quality and they can be made into food grade and medicine grade.
