Raw materials, formulations and plant-based chemistry

Fundamentally, products are, first and foremost, raw materials and formulations, constantly developing to meet increasing technical and environmental requirements.


Elastopole’s first area of focus concerns raw materials (petro-sourced and bio-sourced) and their formulations and includes more and more plant-based chemistry as an alternative production channel for raw materials. Work done in the Cluster relates to :

  • The design and management of new rubber, elastomer and polymer materials, including bio-resources
  • Natural rubber and its substitutes
  • Bio-sourced additives and loads
  • Materials and substances derived from recycling
  • Taking on board the issues raised by European REACH/CLP/FDS regulations
  • Making specifications stricter
  • Behaviour of elastomeric parts under stress conditions (at very low temperatures. etc.)
  • Fatigue, ageing and the life span of components based on elastomers and polymers.
