Elastomers

The incorporation of wax composite particles into elastomers can improve durability, mold release, anti-blocking and wear resistance. Our advanced composite powders based on PTFE, aluminum oxide, ceramic, and graphene can be particularly useful to improve abrasion resistance and bulk mechanical properties.
