WHAT DOES ELASTOMER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

elastomer

Elastomer

An elastomer is a polymer with viscoelasticity and very weak inter-molecular forces, generally having low Young's modulus and high failure strain compared with other materials. The term, which is derived from elastic polymer, is often used interchangeably with the term rubber, although the latter is preferred when referring to vulcanisates. Each of the monomers which link to form the polymer is usually made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and/or silicon. Elastomers are amorphous polymers existing above their glass transition temperature, so that considerable segmental motion is possible. At ambient temperatures, rubbers are thus relatively soft and deformable. Their primary uses are for seals, adhesives and molded flexible parts. Application areas for different types of rubber are manifold and cover segments as diverse as tires, shoe soles as well as dampening and insulating elements. The importance rubbers have can be judged from the fact that global revenues are forecast to rise to US$56 billion in 2020. IUPAC definition Polymer that displays rubber-like elasticity.

Definition of elastomer in the English dictionary

The definition of elastomer in the dictionary is any material, such as natural or synthetic rubber, that is able to resume its original shape when a deforming force is removed.
