Baytec soft elastomers provide low durometer characteristics with high tear strength and elongation, without the use of plasticizers. These performance characteristics position the elastomers as inexpensive replacements for silicones in repetitive-use parts such as molds, Bayer MaterialScience L.L.C. said. In addition to being 20 percent lighter than silicone rubber, the Baytec elastomers are abrasion resistant, resilient, hydrolytically stable and easily processed with adjustable pot lives, low mixing ratios and low viscosities.
