Specialty elastomers for electrical components

Wire Cable Electrical Connectors

Electrical components demand the highest in performance and reliability. Rely on ExxonMobil specialty elastomers to help meet your toughest electrical component requirements.

Santoprene™ thermoplastic elastomers
Santoprene TPEs combine the electrical and mechanical performance properties of thermoset rubber with the processing ease of plastic for molded connectors. They offer:

  • Excellent watertight seals, enabling connectors to be insert-molded to cable jacketing, producing a single integral part
  • Long-term resistance to the environmental effects of abrasion, chemical exposure, UV and more
  • Good flexibility performance at low temperatures to -60°C (-76°F)
  • Listing under UL file number QMFZ2

Santoprene TPEs work well in outdoor, marine and underground power applications. Santoprene TPE grades help you to reduce the risks and lower the costs of application development through compliance with local regulations and standards that include UL, RoHS and WEEE.

Vistalon™ EPDM rubber
Vistalon EPDM rubber delivers stable performance for medium-voltage components that must function in extremely demanding environments. Products manufactured with Vistalon EPDM offer:

  • Excellent flexibility
  • Wet electrical properties
  • Extended service life

Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomers
Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers partner well in polyolefin blends and are a good option for highly flexible electrical applications with halogen-free requirements.

Exact™ plastomers
Exact™ plastomers can be used to lower the cost of EPDM and improve flexibility of cross-linked polyethylene compounds. They also blend well with ethylene vinyl acetate for flexible, halogen-free formulations.
