ChronoPrene

SOFT, COMPLIANT AND ELASTIC, YET DURABLE, RESILIENT AND ROBUST. 

Thermoplastic Rubber Elastomers

This biocompatible elastomer may be considered as a substitute for rubber, latex and silicone materials. Though soft and compliant, the ChronoPrene resins offer a high flexural modulus, as well as a superior combination of tensile strength and elongation. 

An easy molding, high-flow rubber, ChronoPrene can be processed using conventional extrusion, injection molding and blowmolding methods. Its physical properties make it an optimal material for applications requiring rubber or elastic characteristics, such as compliant/ non-compliant balloons, endoscopic and laparoscopic inflation bags.

 

ChronoPrene can be processed at low temperatures, resulting in excellent surface smoothness and superior elasticity. ChronoPrene exhibits high abrasion resistance, durability and UV stability and is available in hardnesses ranging from 5 Shore A to 75 Shore A.

ChronoPrene processing can be optimized by drying to a moisture content equal to or less than 0.05% by weight prior to melt processing.  

Typically, the pellets must be dried for 3-4 hours with a dryer inlet air temperature of 180ºF +/- 20ºF. We recommend a machine-mounted desiccant-type hopper dryer, capable of reaching and maintaining a dew point of -40ºF.  If dry times are in excess of 8-10 hours, a hopper dryer temperature of 120-150ºF is usually sufficient to achieve optimal moisture content.
