The more flexible a material, the more permeable it is to gases and
chemicals. When customers need both flexibility and high barrier, there
is currently no cost effective technology available.
InMat’s Nanolok™ coatings for elastomers offer a unique solution to
that problem by providing the barrier properties of more rigid polymers
while maintaining a high flexibility for rubber applications. For the
tire market, this means higher fuel efficiency, lower temperature
build-up and higher performance.
Nanolok™ coatings will provide these benefits at a price that also
lowers the manufacturing costs. Additional benefits for the tire
customer will include lower weight and reduced disposal costs.
