Distribution and Industrial
The Benefits of Elastomer Materials for Distribution and Industrial Applications.
Every elastomer compound is a little different, and manufacturers have different priorities with choosing the right material. But most elastomers share a few key physical properties that are important for distribution and industrial tubing applications.
Many elastomer materials are well suited to the rigors of an intense service environment. This may include extreme temperatures and temperature fluctuations, rough handling, abrasion, repeat stretching or flexing, and other factors. The right elastomer compound will have the tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and other qualities needed to continue to perform as intended, making them an excellent material choice for industrial tubing.
In many applications, even microscopic contaminants can be incredibly damaging and costly to contend with. This includes healthcare settings, laboratories, clean rooms, and more. Many elastomer compounds are excellent for tubing used in sensitive environments where contaminants must be kept to a minimum.
Elastomer is an excellent material choice for tubing, components, and other products that are subjected to repeat flexing and bending while in service. Elastomer materials are highly flexible and can handle a lot of dynamic and irregular movement while in service without losing integrity. Elastomer is also excellent for industrial tubing that must fit into tight quarters, since the material can bend and twist around other components in an assembly.
