HyTemp is an acrylic rubber that is manufactured using emulsion polymerization of different acrylic monomers. The monomers define the properties of the polymer, such as its thermal and physical properties, thermal and oil resistance, and processing properties.
The polymer can be used in rubber compounds intended for products that are to be used in a wide temperature range. The material also has excellent UV resistance. HyTemp is also suitable for use in products that will be exposed to high temperatures, or which require high resistance to petroleum-based lubricants and fats.
HyTemp’s main application area is sealing in vehicles, such as valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets, and O-rings.
Zeon offers several different variants of the HyTemp material.
