Heat- and Chemical-Resistant Ethylene Acrylic Elastomer
Vamac® is widely used in applications where heat and chemical resistance, and specific rubber-like qualities are needed, including automotive powertrains.
DuPont™ Vamac® ethylene acrylic elastomer is engineered for superior thermal and chemical resistance. Widely used for automotive components, ethylene acrylic elastomer helps provide longevity in powertrain applications and air management systems, and delivers long-term durability in other environments with diverse chemical exposure over a broad temperature range.
Engine and transmission seals made with Vamac® provide resistance to service fluids, and retain sealing properties when under compression. Transmission lip seals made with Vamac® help withstand pressure, either hot or cold.
Vamac® has been selected for demanding automotive applications. DuPont has extensive experience working with customers to recommend Vamac® in their applications. DuPont provides global support with local technical assistance in over 65 countries.
Proper grade selection often depends on a combination of factors. View the performance information for grade selection.
