LANXESS Unveils Biobased Ethylene-based EPDM Grades for More Sustainable Rubber Applications

Published on 2013-08-19. Author : SpecialChem

Synthetic rubber specialist LANXESS will be adding not one but five new grades to its portfolio of "green" ethylene-propylene-diene elastomers (Keltan Eco) before the end of 2013. This will lead to a further significant increase in the range of applications for this synthetic rubber using ethylene from a state-controlled, biobased source. The five new grades are "drop-in" variants of conventional EPDM rubber grades from LANXESS that are already in widespread use. If all goes according to schedule, they will be commercially available in the second half of 2013.
