Elastomers are a common class of polymers that are used in the automotive, industrial technology, healthcare and household sectors. Most of these elastomers are used as passive materials for e.g. tires and conveyor belts as well as for sealing and shock absorption.
CeSMA elevates this material class to a higher level of material complexity through special functionalization and processing technologies.
Therefore, the material development focuses on the following elastomeric topics:
- Dielectric elastomers
- Magnetorheological elastomers
- Conductive elastomers
- Tailor-made silicone rubber formulations
