Cabot Corporation Launches Transfinity High Performance Elastomer Composites

january 16 2012

Cabot Corp. informed about the launch of Transfinity elastomer composites, a new class of materials that dramatically improves elastomer durability and delivers transformational performance improvements in wear resistance and vibration isolation applications.

Transfinity products are composites made from elastomer latex, which is a liquid form of rubber, and reinforcing particles, such as carbon black. The products are produced in a patented process that creates composites that are stronger than conventional elastomer materials.

In the mining, defense, automotive and aerospace industries, customers can use Transfinity materials to engineer significantly longer lasting and/or smaller products for demanding applications.

“The transformational performance of Transfinity products has been validated in tire and defense applications, and we are on a path to commercialization in those markets,” said Sameer Bharadwaj, general manager, Cabot Elastomer Composites. Transfinity products can extend the range of rubber pads or tracks on military vehicles, allowing tanks to travel farther without service and reducing the need for dangerous in-field service operations. Similarly, Transfinity products can vastly improve the service life of critical components in airplanes and helicopters.

Transfinity materials also enable entirely new possibilities in engineering design. For example, in automotive applications, the high durability of Transfinity composites creates opportunities to design smaller, lightweight suspension components that reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel economy.
