Development of a high molecular weight EPDM for engine mounts
Dr. Luca Vitalini Saccone, Polimeri Europa
In nowadays vehicles the engine mounts are subjected to increased temperatures due to a lower availability of empty spaces in the hood. Therefore the automotive industry is looking for alternative materials for substitution of NR. Polimeri Europa developed at lab scale a high molecular weight EPDM that shows good vibration isolation, mechanical and aging properties.
