We offer an array of elastomers that meet the highly specialized requirements of a variety of industries including materials that are resistant to chlorine, chloramines and other chemicals commonly found in municipal water systems.  In fact, over 25 years ago we developed our Chlorazone® elastomeric formulation, the world’s first chlorine-resistant rubber.
