TOKYO-Wednesday 24 October 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

KULPSVILLE, Pa. -Wednesday 24 October 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The U.S. Patent Office has awarded Greene Tweed Patent Number 10,011,690 for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomer Compositions and Molded Articles. The innovative elastomer technology was developed by a team that included inventor Ron Campbell, PhD, Principal Scientist and Technology Leader for Elastomers in Greene Tweed’s Advanced Technology Group, to provide a competitive advantage in the Energy market and expand technology protected under a previous patent.

Most elastomers experience severe blistering or cracking when the force of these expanding g ... Read more »
