Elastomers are superior materials in many regards

Elastomers versus metals

  • Substansially lighter than metals( 1,2 vs. 2,7 Al and 7,8 Fe)
  • Production clearly more energy-friendly
  • Molding cost of cast parts much smaller
  • Chemical resistance much better
  • Abrasion resistance better compared to base metals
  • Elasticity allows for flexibility and impact
  • Fire-proof, does not lead to a spark of electricity

Elastomers versus plastics

  • Allows thicker pieces production
  • Mold cost less in complicated parts
  • Radiation resistance better
  • Abrasion resistance much better
  • Elasticity allows for flexibility and impact
