Melt-processible rubber. (Materials).

DataMyte, a manufacturer of portable industrial digital assistants, has selected Alcryn melt-processible rubber to help protect its latest generation of hand-held computers. Alcryn MPR is utilized as rubber armor over the outer shell to protect the devices against mechanical and chemical abuse often experienced in harsh industrial environments. Alcryn MPR is said to deliver the durable performance characteristics of rubber and easily processes on conventional plastics equipment, which provides cost savings, according to the company. Alcryn MPR does not require compounding or pre-drying before processing. Since parts made from Alcryn require no vulcanization, scrap can be recycled repeatedly with no detrimental effect on performance or appearance, according to the manufacturer.
