Applications

Rubber and polymer materials are used in numerous products and systems. They are found in almost all markets.


Elastopole’s sixth area of focus concerns the applications for polymers. Often hidden, elastomers and polymers are present in all sectors in most products today. Health issues and the exploration of extreme environments cause these materials to evolve.


The main application sectors identified in the Cluster’s strategic route map for the 2014 - 2018 period are :

  • Future mobility
    • cars
    • bicycles and motor cycles
    • HGVs
    • cars and buses
    • aeronautics (planes, helicopters, dirigibles, etc.)
    • space
    • railways
    • marine
  • Energy, including renewable energies
  • Industrial equipment and processes
  • Efficient buildings and public works
  • The "comfort" of living beings
    • health and well-being
    • medical and pharmaceutical
    • personal equipment (protection, safety, sport, etc.)


Elastomers are everywhere and, apart from their technical characteristics, the cluster wishes to emphasise the image of a product whose cardinal virtue is that it contributes to the comfort of living beings.
