ExxonMobil's Vistalon™ ethylene propylene diene (EPDM) rubber is used in a wide variety of applications, offering processing and finished product performance beyond the capabilities of natural and general-purpose synthetic rubbers. Vistalon is designed to provide excellent heat (up to 175°C), ozone, and weather resistance. Vistalon also offers good water resistance, good electrical insulation and good low temperature flexibility. Additionally, it has good resistance to ketones, ordinary diluted acids, and alkalines.
Vistalon rubber grades are used in a wide variety of applications in the automotive, consumer, and industrial sectors. Common applications include: automotive belts, industrial belts and hoses, seals, gaskets, pads, electrical insulation, and roofing sheets. Vistalon can also be blended with other materials such as plastics and elastomers to adjust physical properties in the final compound. Vistalon EPDM can be loaded with high levels of filler for cost-effective compounding.
We’ve seen our customers benefit from Vistalon with improved processes, enhanced performance and increased value for their end-products. We recently added data sheets for several Vistalon grades for calendered, extruded and molded applications ranging from roofing membranes and water management to automotive weatherseal hoses and gaskets, to electrical connectors and compounds. Check out the data sheets here on our ExxonMobil Chemical Data Sheet page and contact us for formulations specific to your unique requirements.
Vistalon 722 offers excellent electrical properties, provides excellent processability of the polymer and cable compound, enhanced cable flexibility and low temperature performance compared with conventional EPDM, cross-linked polyethylene and competitive metallocene-based EPDM.
Suitable for medium and low voltage wire and cable applications, Vistalon 722 is supplied in pellet rather than baled form, making it easy and clean to use. Already approved in several commercial applications, Vistalon 722 is proving highly successful.
