Zeon Chemicals develops new fully saturated HNBR with enhanced low temperature flexibility

Published on 2004-02-02. Author : SpecialChem

Zeon Chemicals is continuing to break boundaries by introducing Zetpol® 4300, a fully saturated hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) that combines the advantages of exceptional low temperature performance with outstanding heat and oil resistance.

Known for its ability to withstand both extreme low and high temperatures and maintain excellent physical properties and compression set resistance, Zetpol 4300 is suitable for a wide array of applications. These include seals, gaskets, hoses, and diaphragms in the automotive, oil and aerospace industries.

Zeon continues to offer the broadest line of HNBRs with low temperature grades including Zetpol 3310, 4310 and 4300. By developing Zetpol 3310 and 4310, Zeon took low temperature performance to the next level using innovative terpolymer technology with precise control of molecular structure. Building on this success, Zeon has now created Zetpol 4300, which offers the low temperature properties with the added benefits of a fully saturated HNBR, including excellent heat and fluid resistance.

According to Dave Rosbottom, Business Manager of Zetpol HNBRs, "The introduction of Zetpol 4300 is a direct result of Zeon Chemicals’ strong commitment to bringing innovative and high quality products to the marketplace."
