ACM- Polyacrylic Rubber

ACM (Acrylic Rubber) is a type of synthetic rubber that exhibits excellent resistance to heat, oil, ozone, and weathering. It possesses a unique combination of properties that make it suitable for various applications. Here are some key properties of ACM rubber:

  1. Heat Resistance: ACM rubber can withstand high temperatures without significant degradation. It maintains its properties and integrity even at temperatures up to approximately -10°C to 150°C (-50°F to 302°F )(up to 175°C (347°F)for limited periods of time). This makes it suitable for applications involving exposure to hot environments.

  2. Oil Resistance: ACM rubber exhibits good resistance to many oils, fuels, and lubricants. It does not swell or deteriorate when in contact with petroleum-based fluids. This property makes it suitable for use in automotive applications such as gaskets, seals, and hoses.

  3. Weather Resistance: ACM rubber has excellent resistance to ozone, UV radiation, and weathering. It can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight and outdoor conditions without significant degradation. This property makes it suitable for outdoor applications and seals in environments with high ozone levels.

  4. Chemical Resistance: ACM rubber shows resistance to various chemicals, acids, and alkalis. It is relatively resistant to attack from acids, but its resistance to alkaline substances may be limited compared to other rubber compounds. It is important to consider the specific chemicals and concentrations when assessing its compatibility.

  5. Low Temperature Flexibility: ACM rubber remains flexible even at low temperatures, down to approximately -40°C (-40°F). It does not become brittle or lose its elasticity, allowing it to maintain sealing capabilities in cold environments.

  6. Electrical Insulation: ACM rubber exhibits good electrical insulation properties. It is commonly used in electrical components and cables to provide electrical insulation and protection against moisture and environmental conditions.

  7. Compression Set Resistance: ACM rubber has good resistance to compression set, which refers to the ability of the rubber to recover its original shape after being compressed. This property is important in applications where rubber components need to maintain their shape and functionality over extended periods.

It’s important to note that the specific properties of an ACM rubber compound can vary significantly depending on the formulation, processing conditions, and the intended application. we customize the compound to meet specific requirements.
