Elastomers Innovation from Neoprene to Now
DuPont elastomers offer solutions, from cutting-edge to tried-and-true, for applications, from adhesives and semi-conductor parts to wire and cable coating.
DuPont is working with customers to make things better, from custom applications for thermoset elastomers used in the general rubber industry to high-performance fluoroelastomers used in demanding chemical and automotive applications.
DuPont elastomers are selected for application-critical performance qualities, whether the need is sealing, flexibility, durability or reliability. We provide specialized elastomers for use with aggressive chemicals and high temperatures, for a range of industrial uses. DuPont has been a leader in the elastomers industry for more than 80 years. We remain committed to working with customers around the world to collaborate on cost-efficient solutions.
- DuPont™ Hytrel®
For over fifty years, DuPont™ Viton® fluoroelastomer has delivered a combination of high-temperature performance and exceptional chemical resistance. Its dynamic characteristics give critical seals and parts exceptional performance and longer life in aggressive environments.
- Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts
DuPont™ Vamac® ethylene acrylic elastomer products thrive in harsh environments, performing in turbocharger hoses, oil cooler hoses, seals and gaskets. Vamac® elastomers can be fashioned into cured compounds with superb low-temperature resistance, high-temperature durability, and resistance to auto fluids, such as transmission fluid and engine oils.
