Rubber Die Cutting

Synthetic Rubber

Synthetic rubber is a generic term used to describe any type of artificial elastomer. Elastomers are polymers that feature viscoelasticity, meaning they exhibit both elastic and viscous properties while undergoing deformation. Millable urethane is a synthetic rubber compound known as Millathane®, and is manufactured by TSE Industries.

American Micro Industries can provide Millathane® die cut rubber products that meet your exact specifications.

Millathane® Properties

Millathane® rubbers possess a unique combination of properties that is difficult to find in just about any other type of natural or synthetic rubber material. Millathane® has outstanding abrasion resistance, low gas permeability, a high resistance to compression set and a high resilience. In addition, it offers excellent oil, ozone and oxygen resistance and dynamic load bearing ability.

Another key Millathane® feature is its low temperature flexibility. It has a working temperature of 248°.

Millathane® Grades

There is wide range of polyether and polyester grades of Millathane® available to suit your unique application:

  • Polymer Grades
    • Millathane® 26 – FDA 21CFR177.2600-compliant material used for rollers, belts and other products for both food and non-food handling applications.
    • Millathane® 55 – Offers an ideal combination of hardness and easy “processability” for manufacturing products such as rubber-covered rollers and molded parts and components.
    • Millathane® 97 – Transparent material that offers excellent resistance against abrasion, making it a good choice for transparent shoe components, as well as parts that exhibit bright colors.
    • Millathane® CM – Military and aerospace manufacturers prefer this synthetic polymer grade due to its remarkable combination of low temperature properties, superior strength and unsurpassed abrasion resistance.
    • Millathane® E34 – A top choice for paper and printing industry applications, this Millathane® polymer grade offers the hydrolysis and abrasion resistance required for the rubber-coated rollers used in paper production.
    • Millathane® E40 – Millathane® E40 contains excellent low-temperature properties that meet the manufacturing requirements for many types of military and aerospace industry parts and components.
  • Polyester Grades
    • Millathane® 5004 – This synthetic rubber provides exceptional oil and solvent resistance and is commonly used for products such as paper rollers, suction cups and diaphragms.
    • Millathane® 66 – Provides the maximum oil, heat and compression set resistance necessary for products such as gaskets, rollers, seals and belts.
    • Millathane® 76 – Known for its remarkable abrasion and oil resistance, Millathane® 76 is well-suited for wheels, vibration insulators, O-rings and gaskets.
    • Millathane® HT Pre-milled – Features excellent frictional properties and low temperature characteristics required for certain types of rollers, belts and gaskets.
