Santoprene™ thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) are high-performance elastomers that combine the best attributes of vulcanized rubber – such as flexibility and low compression set – with the processing ease of thermoplastics.
ExxonMobil Chemical’s broad range of Vistalon™ ethylene propylene diene polymethylene backbone (EPDM) rubber grades are used in a wide variety of applications in the automotive, consumer and industrial sectors. They deliver heat-resistant part performance and processing benefits that exceed those provided by natural and general-purpose rubbers.
The ESTANE® TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) product line consists of polyester, polyether and specialty polymer compounds. The ESTANE TPU portfolio bridges the gap between flexible rubber and rigid plastics.
Isoplast® Engineered Thermoplastics (ETPs) are designed for rigid polymer requirements due to their high tensile strength and impact resistance. This product class combines the toughness and dimensional stability of amorphous resins with the chemical resistance of crystalline materials.
These polymers may be used to replace polycarbonate where stress cracking is an issue or coloring is difficult. Isoplast® is ideal for applications needing an impact resistance-based polymer, and is available in impact modified, clear and glass-filled grades.
Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomers introduce an ever-expanding range of possibilities to compounding and polymer modification, films and nonwoven applications.
Based on proprietary Exxpol™ metallocene technology, Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers can be processed in many ways, including:
Exact™ plastomers are ethylene alpha olefin copolymers that bridge the gap between elastomers and plastics, with rubber-like properties and the processability of plastic. Used as polymer modifiers, they provide unique properties in various applications.
