Reliable Blending Technologies and Refined Production Technologies

Boasting refined technologies and expertise in dealing with raw materials based on years of research and experience, Denka Elastlution untiringly works to create high-quality products featuring optimal performance.

We respond to fulfill the diverse needs of our customers. We propose the materials and forms that best satisfy the unique demands of our customers and fulfill their needs through a production system able to react to a broad spectrum requests regarding lot size and number of items.

Compound Products

Denka Elastlution is ready to sustain stable quality and meet the diverse needs of our customers through the use of high-efficiency Pressurized kneaders matched to the production needs of multiple items in small lots.

Denka Elastlution's characteristics

1)Manufacturing of materials with high oil content We produce soft compounds with oil content greater than 30% by weight. We produce these compounds with excellent carbon black dispersion.
2)「Fireshut®」 Thermal Expansion Composites We produce a wide array of thermally expandable rubber compounds that exhibit excellent fire resistance, capable of expanding to five to thirty times their volume when heated by fire to close openings and to prevent the intrusion of smoke and the spread of fire. They include vulcanized, non-vulcanized, adhesive and other rubber compounds.We are also capable of producing high-filling compounds with inorganic filler content greater than 70% by weight.
