Polymer Engineering and Chemistry

With its long experience in developing rubber compounds and its formulation database, Soucy Baron can meet your project’s technical requirements pertaining to manufacturing costs or project complexity. We have the expertise to determine the type of elastomer, and its composition and additives required to meet the specific needs of your application. We can also use an existing formulation when its properties correspond to the specifications of the desired part.

Vulcanized elastomers are known for their tensile capacity – elongating up to 10 times their original length – to keep their low temperature flexibility, and to take their original shape. Soucy Baron can also make use of additives which alter, among other things, resistance to abrasion, chemicals, wear, and tear. These additives can also incorporate fragrant agents, coloring pigments and flame retardants. The possibilities are almost endless!
