Milastomer™ Thermoplastic Vulcanizate (TPV) Characteristics

Density

Milastomer™ is the lightest general purpose elastomer material with a density of at most 900 kg/m3. By using Milastomer™ instead of ordinary vulcanized rubber, product weight can be reduced by about 30%.

Chemical Resistance

Excellent resistance to water, acids, alkalis, alcohols, acetone and vegetable oils. However, care must be taken because it is susceptible to attack by aromatic organic solvents, gasoline, and mineral oil etc.

Weatherability/Ozone Resistance

The B (Black) Grade of Milastomer™ has outstanding weatherabilty and is suitable for outdoor use. Both the B and N (Natural) grades have superior ozone resistance.

Electrical

Similar to polyethylene and polypropylene, Milastomer™ has outstanding electrical insulation performance.
