The rubber and polymers sector

Synergies between rubber and polymer materials


Elastopole aims to bring together industrial, scientific and university strengths in the rubber and polymers sector to work on collaborative projects.


The cluster built its strategy around the numerous synergies which exist between rubber and polymer materials.


Similar materials

  • A wide variety of polymers, some of which (PU, TPE, silicone) are transformed by both sectors
  • The same additives and loads
  • Advanced specifications (extreme temperatures, aggressive environments, non-toxicity)
  • Increasing levels of performance


Similar conversion processes

  • Producing mixtures or compounds, in a mixer for elastomers, in an extruder for plastics
  • Parts produced by extrusion, injection, compression, calendering
  • Cross-linking high-performance polymers : rubber (vulcanisation), silicones, thermo-setting plastics, composites


Sectors for vertical integration

  • Materials producers
  • Manufacturers of industrial plant and equipment
  • Formulators or compounders
  • Polymer converters
  • Assemblers
  • Specifiers
  • Research and engineering service providers
