PREFERRED RUBBER: SEC Compounds
December 19, 2004
Preferred Rubber Compounding Corp. recently introduced its line of Vamac ethylene-acrylic (AEM) specialty elastomer compounds. The Vamac compounds are part of the company's series of specialty elastomer compounds (SECs), which are ideal for a variety of both automotive and non-automotive transportation applications. Vamac compounds are designed for use in parts having contact with engine oil or air at temperatures up to 170 degrees C. Typical uses include suspension and steering system components. For example, Vamac compounds are commonly used in oscillation dampers, which often need resistance to heat generated by catalytic converters. Other uses for Vamac compounds include oil coolant hoses in turbocharged engines, seals for valve covers and oil suction hoses.
