ARLANXEO presented its new terpolymer Therban® ST 3107 VP at DKT 2018 (German Rubber Conference). The fully hydrogenated nitrile rubber (HNBR) has a new, innovative termonomer, which has never been used before with HNBR rubbers.

Susanna Lieber, Global Head of Technical Marketing in the ARLANXEO business for Therban, said:
“With the new Therban ST 3107 VP, we can now offer our customers a unique solution for the most complex types of applications, where good low-temperature flexibility combined with excellent oil resistance is required. Our new Therban product can reduce the glass transition temperature by up to 10°C in rubber compounds, while maintaining excellent media resistance. With these properties, it is setting new standards.”

A patent application has been filed for the new Therban ST 3107 VP, which was developed at ARLANXEO’s sites in Dormagen, Germany, and La Wantzenau, France.

Key Features & Application Areas

  • The hydrogenated nitrile rubber Therban is an innovative high-performance rubber specially developed by ARLANXEO for the most complex applications. 
  • The elastomer offers good resistance to high temperatures and in contact with fuels, oil and gas, as well as excellent mechanical properties.
  • The various Therban products are therefore used in fields such as the automotive industry for the production of timing belts and the oil extraction industry in stator/rotor systems for drilling.
