abot Corp. (NYSE: CBT) announces the launch of Transfinity™ elastomer composites, a new
class of materials that dramatically improves elasto- mer durability and delivers transformational perfor- mance improvements in wear resistance and vibrati- on isolation applications.
“The transformational performance of Transfinity products has been validated in tire and defense applications, and we are on a path to commerciali-
zation in those markets,” said Sameer Bharadwaj, general manager, Cabot Elastomer Composites. Transfinity products can extend the range of rubber pads or tracks on military vehicles, allowing tanks to travel farther without service and reducing the need for dangerous in-field service operations. Similarly, Transfinity products can vastly improve the service life of critical components in airplanes and helico- pters.
