Dow Corning Introducing Series of Standard High-Consistency Rubber

Published on 2010-08-30. Author : SpecialChem

The Xiameter® brand from Dow Corning is launching a series of standard high-consistency rubber (HCR) compounds for customers in North America and Europe. Now, customers can get standard HCR compounds for high-voltage insulation, wire and cable, general molding, and general extrusion applications without added customization costs and product development delays. To help determine the exact compound customers need, the Xiameter® team also developed a quick and easy-to-use online selector guide.

"Our range of proven Xiameter® standard HCR compounds will meet your specific performance expectations," said Shelley Bausch, Xiameter® Vice President and Executive Director. "Most compounds on the market today are highly customized, so we've decided to offer a set product line of standard HCR compounds so that customers can choose the preform, durometer range, cure system, and standard color they need."

The Xiameter® online selector guide is one of the easiest, quickest ways to identify the right HCR compound on the Web today. Customers can use the online selector tool, available 24 hours a day, to identify suitable products for their specific application. They get the HCR compound at market-based prices, delivered where and when they need it.
