Moisture crosslinkable EPR: the next generation of rubber processing

Presenter: Andrew Meyer

9:30 am - 10:00 am

Nonferrous/Electrical Sessions


EPR (ethylene propylene rubber) moisture crosslinkable compounds allow manufacturers to process rubber based, thermoset materials without investing in expensive curing processes (i.e., continuous vulcanization lines or electron beams). The versatility, flexibility and processability of these compounds has accelerated their use in various wire and cable applications. This presentation provides a brief overview of moisture cure technology, and highlights the applications, benefits, and challenges of moisture crosslinkable EPR based systems.
