The automotive elastomers market has been segmented by type into synthetic elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers. Among these segments, the thermoplastic elastomers have dominated the automotive elastomers market in previous years and are expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to its light weight properties and flexibility of preferred customization. The global market […]

Elastomers are unstructured polymers prevailing beyond their glass transition temperatures such that significant motion is possible. Elastomers have very low intermolecular strength, low modulus of elasticity, and high strain of failure as compared to other materials. Carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and silicon monomers link to form the polymer, which eventually forms elastomers. There are two major […]
