Zeotherm is composed of a heat and oil resistant polyacrylate (ACM) elastomer dynamically vulcanized and dispersed in a polyamide, plastic matrix. The result is a series of TPVs with the processing ease of thermoplastics and the physical properties of high-performance thermoset rubber. Extensive long-term testing has proven grades in this series can survive continuous use, in both air and several automotive fluids, at 150°C and short-term excursions to 175°C. Zeotherm 100 Series grades are optimized for injection molding.
Various Zeotherm grades are available with hardness values ranging from 60 Shore A to 90 Shore A. Depending upon the grade, Zeotherm can be formed by many different thermoplactic processing methods including injection molding, extrusion/press blow molding, suction, and extrusion/co-extrusion.
