The article presents information on a study examines the epichlorohydrin Hydrin/ECO elastomers product line when vulcanized with several standard cure systems. The product line consists of a variety of polymers, with unique characteristics not found in other single elastomer types alone. A total of 12 compounds were examined. Formulations prepared consisted of standard carbon black- and silicafilled master batches, where variants of cure system type according to polymer cure site were made.
