Arlanxeo introduces innovative Therban solution with new termonomer

August 14/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Arlanxeo, a leading global manufacturer of synthetic elastomers, has present its new terpolymer Therban ST 3107 VP, as per the company's press release.

The fully hydrogenated nitrile rubber (HNBR) has a new, innovative termonomer, which has never been used before with HNBR rubbers.

"With the new Therban ST 3107 VP, we can now offer our customers a unique solution for the most complex types of applications, where good low-temperature flexibility combined with excellent oil resistance is required," says Susanna Lieber, Global Head of Technical Marketing in the Arlanxeo business for Therban. "Our new Therban product can reduce the glass transition temperature by up to 10 C in rubber compounds, while maintaining excellent media resistance. With these properties, it is setting new standards," Lieber adds.

A patent application has been filed for the new Therban ST 3107 VP, which was developed at Arlanxeos sites in Dormagen, Germany, and La Wantzenau, France.

The hydrogenated nitrile rubber Therban is an innovative high-performance rubber specially developed by Arlanxeo for the most complex applications. The elastomer offers good resistance to high temperatures and in contact with fuels, oil and gas, as well as excellent mechanical properties. The various Therban products are therefore used in fields such as the automotive industry for the production of timing belts and the oil extraction industry in stator/rotor systems for drilling.

As MRC informed before, in July 2018, Arlanxeo introduced its new thermoplastic vulcanisates (TPVs) that combine Keltan Eco ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM) with green fillers, plasticizers and thermoplastics, resulting in EPDM products with up to 90% sustainable ingredients.

Arlanxeo was established in April 2016 as a joint venture of Lanxess - a world-leading specialty chemicals company based in Cologne, Germany - and Saudi Aramco - a major global energy and chemicals enterprise headquartered in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The two partners each hold a 50-percent interest in the joint venture. The business operations of Arlanxeo are assigned to the High Performance Elastomers and Tire & Specialty Rubbers business units.
