Demanding Automotive Applications

Compounding for Demanding Automotive Applications

Only the right formulation and a perfect mixing process result in the optimum final automotive rubber product.

Compounded components are used for the body, chassis, and powertrain of every car that comes off the assembly line. Below is a cut-away automobile that illustrates and defines some of the over three hundred elastomer parts on the typical automobile. HEXPOL compounds are used to manufacture these parts.

Lightweighting and “Green Technologies”

HEXPOL leverages proven concepts of lightweighting and “green technology” to help auto manufacturers achieve better fuel economy while reducing carbon emissions.

Newer and lighter elastomers are creating numerous Lightweighting opportunities by replacing metal parts with polymer-based components. Innovative “Green Technologies” reduce environmental impact, conserve resources, and promote renewably sourced polymers.
