Topics include blending silicone and EPDM rubber, how sponge rubber is made, and how foam rubber is made.

With its long history of solving sealing challenges, Elasto Proxy has applied its industry knowledge and technical expertise to produce this informative resource.
How to Choose the Right Rubber
As Elasto Proxy’s new e-book explains, the consequences of choosing the wrong rubber can be expensive. Blending long-chain polymers is challenging, but compounders can impart the best characteristics from constituent materials such as EPDM and silicone rubber. Depending on the application, however, buyers may need polymers that are not blended with other materials.
To order the right rubber, seal designers and technical buyers also need to know what materials are called. The terms “foam rubber” and “sponge rubber” are often used interchangeably, but these materials have different properties. For safety-related applications, selecting the right rubber material may also mean meeting requirements for flame, smoke, and toxicity (FST).
