Why You Should Attend

The automotive industry uses EPDM rubber in components ranging from door and window seals to radiator hoses, belts, engine mounts, and windshield wipers. Keltan® EPDM combines heat and environmental resistance with good mechanical and elastic properties, but automotive designers are seeking compounds that combine high-performance with environmental sustainability and support emerging technologies. With the exact same specifications and performance as conventional EPDM, Keltan® Eco utilizes sustainably sourced raw materials.

What You Will Learn

In this webinar, you’ll learn how Keltan® Eco combines uncompromising quality with a smaller carbon footprint. The presenter, Pete Spanos, is an ARLANXEO Senior Technical Manager who will examine these and other topics:

  • New drive technologies, such as battery electric vehicles, and their engineering challenges
  • Broad trends in New Mobility and what’s needed to plan for the future
  • The rubber value chain, from monomers to polymers and from molders to end users, as well as where sustainable options fit
  • What bio-based Keltan® Eco EPDM rubber is and how it can help shrink your carbon footprint
  • Formulations and properties with Keltan® Eco and other sustainable ingredients
