Development of Frost-Resistant Rubber Based on Epichlorohydrin Rubber of Hydrin T6000 Brand


Article Preview

The results of development of frost-resistant rubber based on epichlorohydrin rubber (ECHR) of Hydrin T6000 brand of Zeon Chemicals L.P. (USA) are described in the present work. The properties of ECHRs are determined by the nature of the structural units that constitute the macromolecules. The absence of olefinic functionality in the main chain gives ECHR the resistance to heat, oxygen, ozone and other factors. The presence of chlorine causes the high resistance of Hydrin T6000 rubber to the effect of hydrocarbon media (oils, fuels, fats, waxes, solvents), and the presence of oxygen atoms helps to maintain the flexibility and elasticity of materials at low temperatures. Hydrin T6000 rubber has the lowest glass transition temperature (Tgt = -60 ° C) from all the epichlorohydrin rubber brands, high oil resistance, increased heat and ozone resistance, and, therefore, attracts researchers' interest as a promising rubber for the development of frost-resistant rubber with sealing capability. The paper presents the formulation of rubbers based on Hydrin T6000 and the results of studies of their physical and mechanical properties. Analysis of the data revealed that the obtained rubber has excellent frost resistance, increased oil resistance at a satisfactory level of residual deformation after compression and strength characteristics. Thus, Hydrin T6000 has established itself as a promising rubber for manufacturing frost-resistant rubber with sealing function and will provide increased reliability and durability of equipment operation in extreme conditions of cold climate in Russia.
