With over five decades of experience in the specialty chemicals industry, TSE Industries has solidified its position as a premier manufacturer and supplier of high-quality elastomers. Leveraging state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technologies, we specialize in developing custom elastomer formulations tailored to the unique needs of our clients.

What Are Elastomers?

Elastomers are polymers that exhibit both viscosity and elasticity, a property known as viscoelasticity. These materials are characterized by their ability to regain their original shape and size after being significantly stretched. The molecules of elastomers are held together by weak intermolecular forces, which generally result in low Young’s modulus and high yield strength or high failure strain. This unique combination of properties makes elastomers indispensable in various applications.

Key Properties of Elastomers

  • Temperature Resistance: The working temperature range of elastomers varies based on factors like media compatibility, seal design, and dynamic or static operation.
  • Low-Temperature Flexibility: Elastomers maintain their flexibility even at low temperatures, which can be studied by subjecting the material to low-temperature retraction tests.
  • Hardness: This measures the material’s resistance to deformation over time. Softer compounds deform easily and have high friction, while harder compounds exhibit high resistance and low friction.
  • Ageing: Understanding how elastomers behave when exposed to heat is crucial. Over time, exposure to heat can lead to hardening, cracking, and splitting if the material’s ageing resistance is exceeded.
  • Color: Elastomers can be colored to differentiate between various compound grades and their specific uses.
  • Elongation at Break: This property tests the point of rupture when the material is under tensile stress, indicating its strength and flexibility.
