Technical Fibre Re-inforced Compounds...
We have developed a range of technical fibre-reinforced compounds which offer high tensile strength at low strain; combined with low compound viscosity for easy processing. Our fibre-filled compounds are designed for use in in applications where the part must be able to withstand extrusion at high differential pressures; for example, anti-extrusion seals.
Our extensive range of fibre-filled compounds include polychloroprene, nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR), hydrogenated nitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR), fluoroelastomers (FKM) and Aflas compounds, which range in hardness from 70 IRHD / Shore A to 65 Shore D.
