NEW POLYMERS, NEW POSSIBILITIES
Rauh Polymers

The introduction of three new polymers, a conductive thermoplastic with high heat and chemical resistance and good mechanical properties for electronic and electrical applications, a copolyester with high impact resistance and durability, and a copolyester-based thermoplastic elastomer with high temperature resistance for medical, food and packaging applications, is reported.

Products & Services
Elastomer and Rubber Shapes
Elastomers and rubber shapes are natural or synthetic  polymers that exhibit elastic properties and can be formed into finished or semi-finished stock.  These amorphous polymers are usually thermosets, but are also available as thermoplastics. Elastic polymer (elastomer) and  rubber shapes are available in different forms and sizes, and often use filler materials.
Thermoplastics and Thermoplastic Resins
Thermoplastics and thermoplastic materials soften when heated and harden when cooled. They can withstand many heating and cooling cycles and are often suitable for recycling.
Specialty Polymers and Resins
Specialty polymers and resins are proprietary polymers, resins, monomers and intermediates. They include products that are based on proprietary curing technologies or chemistries, or that are designed for specialized applications.
Balls and Sphere Shapes
Balls and sphere shapes are used in products that require a spherical component. Examples include bearings, ball screws, valves, flow meters, and gages. Balls and sphere shapes are made from materials such as glass, metals, plastics, and ceramics.
Polymer and Plastic Composites
Polymer and plastic composites are strengthened with fibers, fillers, particulates, powders and other matrix reinforcements to provide improved strength and/or stiffness. Examples include fiber reinforced plastics (FRPs), sheet molding compounds (SMCs), bulk molding compounds (BMCs), pre-preg materials, and fabricated composite parts.
