At IRC 2015 DuPont Performance Polymers (DPP) will reveal key properties of a new high-heat resistant ‘Vamac’ ethylene acrylic elastomer (AEM), which it says offers heat resistance as yet unmatched in AEM.
Introduced as Vamac VMX-5000, the new pre-compound has been designed to meet the latest challenges to automotive hoses and seals imposed by high pressure turbo charging, exhaust gas recirculation and other technologies requiring resistance to higher temperatures andaggressive fluids.
DPP will also introduce Vamac VMX-2122 AEM, a new dipolymer its says offers better physical properties and processing performance than current AEM DP dipolymers. These improvements are coupled with enhanced colour stability, an important benefit for wire and cable applications.
