There is an increased demand for elastomeric compositions having improved heat and fluid resistance in automotive and industrial applications. In automotive applications, new sophisticated designs and engineering of engine compartments and under-the-hood parts require the use of elastomeric composites that can withstand higher service temperatures and have excellent long term aging properties. Similarly, industrial applications are following a similar trend where elastomers are expected to have high performance and function longer in harsher conditions.
