Medical Elastomers Market – Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2018-2026)

Elastomers are usually thermosets but may also be thermoplastic. The long polymer chains cross-link during curing, i.e., vulcanizing. Temperature effects are also present in the demonstrated elasticity of a polymer. Elastomers that have cooled to a glassy or crystalline phase will have less mobile chains, and consequentially less elasticity, than those manipulated at temperatures higher than the glass transition temperature of the polymer.
