Specialty Polymer Compounding

Specialty polymer compounding offers you the flexibility you need.

Elite Advanced Polymers focuses on specialty and custom polymer compounding. This allows our customers to stay nimble in the face of constantly shifting technologies.

Just a few examples of the types of complex applications requiring specialty polymer compounding include elastomeric compounds for electric vehicle parts in the transportation sector; silicone and butyl rubber compounds for wearables and medical devices in life sciences; and EPDM and NBR compounds for gaskets in high-pressure and high-temperature industrial environments.

At Elite, our capabilities allow us to offer you flexibility in lead time, batch size, and more. We accomplish this through our streamlined manufacturing operations.
