Monsanto Offers Free 12-Page Bulletin On Fluid Resistance Of Santoprene®

A free 12-page technical bulletin on the "Fluid Resistance of Santoprene ®" is being offered by the Monsanto Co. of St. Louis, Mo. Santoprene thermoplastic is a family of advanced elastomers that successfully combines performance characteristics of vulcanized rubber, such as heat resistance and low compression set, with the processing ease of thermoplastics.

This bulletin summarizes the physical properties of Santoprene thermoplastic rubber after exposure to a variety of fluids and solvents.

Immersion times were all one week at temperatures ranging from 23 °C to 150°C (73°F to 302°F), depending upon the fluid. Results of these tests demonstrate that Santoprene rubber is inherently resistant to a wide variety of oils, solvents, and chemicals.

In addition to an introduction and discussion, the pamphlet contains some seven tables on test results.

There is also a list of Monsanto offices around the world where technical and sales assistance are available.
