In diesel engines available from Volkswagen, the camshaft absorber plays a direct role in controlling the injection pump and nozzle unit. Operating at long-term temperatures of up to 150 °C, Therban is crucial to the long service life of these parts.
Therban has become indispensable in automotive engineering where elastomers are needed that withstand high temperatures and aggressive media. In driving belts Therban maintains performance even at 165°.
A good espresso machine requires pressure to ensure that the flavors fully develop. Thanks to its compliance with food contact regulations (FDA), Therban® can be used for the seals of the machine and resist hot steam and high pressure without deteriorating.
Resistance to heat, oil, and aggressive chemicals and additives, coupled with excellent mechanical properties, make Therban® suitable for many O-ring applications. Fully saturated grades with high or low temperature and fuel resistance are best for O-ring applications in automotive systems and heavy equipment.
Hard Roll Covers
Rolls play an important part in many areas of industry. They convey, press, finish, emboss, guide and brake, apply liquid media, heat and cool. The materials used for covering these rolls must be tailor-made for each of these applications. Roll covers based on Therban have an extremely smooth, hydrophilic surface and good damping characteristics (reduced heat build-up) and are hard and highly resistant to wear. Therban is suitable for manufacturing extremely hard roll covers, with Shore D values of over 70 and Pusay & Jones values of less than ten and can withstand very high and low tempartures.
Oil well specialities
Elastomer parts used in oil exploration and production are subjected to a combination of severe conditions, such as abrasion, heat and dynamic loading, together with exposure to such hostile media as oil, methane, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and high pH stabilizers. Therban® has a considerably longer service life in such harsh environments than other elastomers. It suffers significantly less wear and blistering in the event of explosive decompression is greatly reduced.
Seals must never be the weak link in high performance machines. That's why seal designers are choosing Therban® for their new generation elastomers. Extreme temperatures, aggressive oils and lubricants are no problem for components made from Therban®.
Synchronous Timing Belts
The best method of achieving the required precision in an engine between crankshaft and camshaft is by means of a synchronous timing belt. Made with a glass cord reinforcement and a dipped polyamide fabric covering, timing belts made from Therban. can perform for more than 150,000 km or approximately 2,500 hours of service.
