Zeon introduces new Zetpol EP polymers

Featuring low viscosity and good process safety, these elastomers are designed to improve and simplify processing in injection moulding applications as well as reducing operating costs without compromising the performance of the finished parts. Created to aid in the injection moulding of complex parts, the Zetpol EP family is said to provide an improvement in mould flow and a better safety margin against scorch to help eliminate knit lines and part delamination. In addition, Zetpol EP elastomers achieve a good balance of heat and environmental resistance as well as dynamic properties, says Zeon.Zeon recently announced a further expansion of its Houston, TX, USA, manufacturing facility that produces Zetpol HNBR elastomers. The expansion, scheduled to be operational in the first quarter of 2012, will increase the plant's production by 25 %.
