Elastomers: At the Forefront of Huge Changes

SpecialChem / Nov 1, 2013

Based on the August Click'N Vote Results the Omnexus Community clearly stated that the Elastomer Market Segment would have brilliant growth times in the near future. Even though cost-competitive materials like Styrenics (TPE-S) are ranked first in terms of growth rates higher performance elastomers like TPE-U arrived very close, behind with only 0.9% gap. This demonstrates that the Elastomer Market Segment will face significant changes in the coming years as far as both materials (TPE-S and TPE-U) are definitely not priced the same way. Another outcome from this August Click'N Vote is the high rating obtained by combined high performance elastomers (by adding results for TPE-E, TPE-A and Other, which includes very high performance elastomers like PTFE or PVDF, a total of 20.9% rating was obtained).
