Santoprene™ synthetic rubber is a highly dynamic thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) with high chemical resistances and physical properties desirable for a wide range of applications and industries. It is resistant to water and most lubricants, acids, alkalies, and oils. Santoprene™ is flexible, durable, and resistant to fatigue and cracking from temperature, ozone, UV exposure, and continuous flexing, making it ideal for demanding operating conditions. Santoprene™ is more energy efficient to produce than thermoset rubber, making it an environmentally conscious alternative.
Because of the physical and chemical properties of Santoprene™ it is the ideal material for applications such as:
Genplex offers food grade, medical grade, and general purpose Santoprene™tubing, expertly crafted to precise specifications and cut to customized lengths to meet all consumer needs.
Santoprene™ is not recommended for applications involving direct contact with freon, gasoline, or kerosene.
