Fact.MR projects the high temperature elastomers market to expand at 7.1% CAGR between 2022 and 2032, in comparison to a CAGR of 5% from 2017 and 2021.

Polymers possessing elasticity and viscosity, as well as weak intermolecular forces, are known as elastomers. Once the deforming force is removed, the elastic property helps elastomers maintain their original shape.

Elastomer monomers are made up of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and silicon. These monomers combine to make elastomeric polymers. Thermosetting and thermoplastic characteristics are both present in elastomers. Thermoplastic elastomers are a type of polymer that melts at a particular temperature.

At high temperatures, thermosetting elastomers do not melt. High temperature elastomers are usually referred to as thermosetting elastomers. High temperature elastomers do not melt; instead, at high temperatures, they become gaseous. In general, high temperature elastomers are insoluble in ordinary solvents such as water, and are also chemically inactive, making them chemically-resistant and anti-corrosive.

Tires, seat coverings, and other rubber items made from high temperature elastomers are widely employed in vehicle and transportation industries. High temperature elastomers include fluorocarbon elastomers, fluorosilicone elastomers, silicone elastomers, and perfluorocarbon elastomers, to name a few.

Other important industries that use these chemicals include electrical and electronics, industrial machinery, consumer goods, and healthcare.
