Butyl/Ethylene acrylic blends

A blend of well-known elastomers has been developed introducing new aspects regarding the formulation ingredients. The introduction of a plate-let filler in the formulation, and the combination of different polymers in the same formulation gave rise to new damping materials.

This new formulation have been designed, elaborated, improved and characterised. The blend PARVIS-1/M shows good damping characteristics for low T. So it can be used as low temperature vibrations damping materials specifically suitable for applications requiring temperature independent performances. For instance automobile industry, building industry, household equipment.

Actually we are producing the blends in a pilot plant and improving all the mixing and compounding parameters in order to get the optimum conditions .The advantage of this approach lies on the fact that the technology applied is very well-known and this will facilitate the subsequent transferring to the industrial level.
