What are Elastomers?
Elastomers, also known as rubber, are versatile polymers with unique properties.
- high flexibility
- low Young's modulus
- viscoelastic behavior
Elastomers can be classified as unsaturated or saturated, each with its own curing process. They find applications in adhesives, construction, consumer products, industrial tools, medical devices, motor vehicles, and wire insulation. Their desirable characteristics, such as thermal and chemical resistance, make them invaluable in various industries.
