At first glance, you might think that rubber and silicone technology remains more or less the same over the years — but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! During our decades in business, we’ve seen many noteworthy changes affect the industry, influencing both manufacturing processes and the quality of the materials themselves. As the industry continues to advance, Elbex is committed to remaining at the forefront.
Examples of Emerging Trends
There are several ways that rubber and silicone technology are continuing to evolve. For example, chemical modification on polymers is being used to enhance the strength of engineering plastics and rubbers, while also improving surface properties of these materials. New additives are constantly being tested to achieve improved results like enhanced thermal stability of silicone. These and other developments aim to improve performance and potential uses for rubber and silicone products.
