Diene elastomers

  • An elastomer is a cross-linked, non-crystalline polymer above its glass transition temperature. 
  • Elastomers may fall into any one of four categories: diene elastomers, saturated elastomers, thermoplastics elastomers or inorganic elastomers. 
  • Diene elastomers have structures based on the molecules butadiene, isoprene and/or their derivatives or copolymers.
