A silicone robber compound is said to be the key to improved lightning protection and longer service life in distribution arresters. The flexible, non-fragmenting elastomer elastomer (ĭlăs`təmər), substance having to some extent the elastic properties of natural rubber. The term is sometimes used technically to distinguish synthetic rubbers and rubberlike plastics from natural rubber. retains its hydrophobicity better than porcelain or competing polymers, resisting leakage current, tracking and erosion, according to the company. Unlike other polymer materials for the application, the silicone is said to maintain its hydrophobicity over time, resulting in higher withstand voltage levels and lower leakage currents, according to the manufacturer. The silicone rubber formulation is said to have been proven in field service and more than 6,000 hours of multi-stress testing. (Dow Corning, Midland, MI 48686-0994)

The super-soft EPDM sponge was designed for applications that require low closure force in the automotive, marine, transportation, heavy equipment and weather stripping industries. The compound can be laminated with pressure sensitive adhesive Pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA, self adhesive, self stick adhesive) is adhesive that forms a bond when pressure is applied to marry the adhesive with the adherend. No solvent, water, or heat is needed to activate the adhesive. systems for easy seal attachment, according to the company. It is said to have good ozone, UV and weatherability characteristics.

Epoxy casting system
A high performance epoxy casting system is formulated as a companion product for the company's Ren Shape-Express 2000 machinable moldmaking material. Both products are said to exhibit the strength and heat resistance required to produce high-quality injection molds. Together, they are said to offer prototypers and injection molders the ability to quickly build tools via casting, machining or a combination of both, according to the requirements of individual projects.
