Cancarb Shares How Thermax® N990 Improves EPDM PEM Cell Stack Gaskets

Cancarb Limited has published a Technical Bulletin that shows how Thermax® N990, a medium thermal carbon black, improves compounding and boosts the performance of EPDM gaskets for polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells. The benefits of adding Thermax® N990 to EPDM include good compression set, low-temperature flexibility, and increased resistance to heat and chemicals.

Webinar Recording: “Effect of Thermax® N990 on EPDM Electrical Percolation Threshold”

Electrical resistivity is an important property for various EPDM applications, such as wire and cable, battery and fuel cell gaskets, and automotive profiles. To achieve the specified electrical resistivity values in these applications, it is necessary to replace smaller particle size furnace blacks with mineral fillers and/or larger particle size carbon blacks. This 47-minute presentation highlights the results of Cancarb’s technical study that compared blends of hard clay, Thermax® N990, and N550, and evaluated how the size, structure, and surface chemistry of these filler systems impact the insulative and conductive behaviors of the EPDM compounds.
