Materials

ERIKS Compounds

Rubber materials or elastomers used in sealing applications are often described as compounds; meaning that they are a mixture of ingredients manufactured under specific conditions.

A compound typically comprises a polymer, cross-link system, fillers and other ingredients used to achieve specific manufacturing-, application- or cost requirements.

Different circumstances demand various compound properties. That is why so many compounds have already been developed. We have categorised our compounds in standard- (general purpose), specialist-(industry or application specific) and high performance grades.

Compound development

If you need advice finding the right compound for your application, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our R&D centers (located in U.S.A., U.K. and the Netherlands) are fully equipped to develop whatever material needed.

Datasheets

Each material page has a table with the available datasheets in pdf. Safety datasheets are available here.
