An elastomer imparts elasticity properties allowing high yield strain compared to other materials. Elastomeric resins include nitrile, SBR, silicone, EPDM and fluoroelastomers. NYCO’s wollastonite grades are commercially used in many elastomers including gaskets, belts, plugs, O-rings, seals and molded parts for improved physical properties and/or reducing costs compared to competitive fillers.
To improve properties by application requirements, NYCO has a portfolio of products from low to high aspect ratio wollastonite which range in surface area, brightness, and particle size distribution. All of NYCO’s grades have excellent dispersibility which is critical for highly filled systems and low shear mixes. In addition, NYCO offers a variety of custom chemical modifications that can further enhance properties and performance.
