Key statement: A thermoplastic elastomer composition having a continuous phase and a dispersed phase, wherein the continuous phase comprising an epoxy-modified polyamide
resin and the dispersed phase comprising a halogenated isoolefin-paraalkylstyrene copolymer rubber, wherein the thermoplastic elastomer composition is obtained by melt-kneading halogenated isoolefm-paraalkylstyrene copolymer rubber, a polyamide
resin, and a polyfiinctionai epoxy compound having two or more epoxy groups per molecule in an amount of 0.
are often used for the production of films, hot-melt adhesives, binders, insulation, fiberglass and filaments, polyamide
resins are most often used in the United States for the manufacture of extruded and molded parts, including gears, bearings, bushings, sprockets, wear pads, sheaves, pulleys, guides, tooling fixtures, cams, feed screws, wear rails, wear strips, housings, wear shoes, conveyer wheels, sleeves, insulators, scraper blades, rollers, die wear plates, telescoping boom, wear pads, slipper blocks, supports, form tools, star wheels, valve seats, wear rings, seals, wheels and rubbing blocks.
The new material, which is based on polyamide
(PA) 410, has been developed by DSM in recent years, and is now set to be commercialised.
