We offer the broadest portfolio of sealing
and damping materials.
With 65 available composites and more than 400 grades of chemically bonded elastomeric & viscoelastic formulations, nobody offers a wider range of material and manufacturing possibilities than Wolverine Advanced Materials. But with so many other material options available, why are Wolverine materials so unique?
Unlike laminated materials, our insulator materials are chemically bonded using a unique manufacturing process. The resulting cross-linked structure provides for greater bond-strength integrity between the elastomer and the metal, resulting in a much more durable, longwearing NVH material.
Standard Materials Portfolio
Alum-N combines an aluminum alloy base with a firmly bonded nitrile synthetic rubber coating and release coating to provide superior tensile strength, compressive strength and sealing characteristics. Ideal for use when corrosion or weight is a factor.
Steel-N is a cold-rolled steel substrate, coated with an oil-resistant, specially compounded nitrile rubber. Steel-N is used for brake shims, gaskets and automotive NVH applications.
Foamet is a cross-linked, chemically blown compounded nitrile synthetic rubber, bonded to a steel or aluminum base. Foamet is used for sealing products and shock resistance in consumer electronic applications.
HNBR functions without degradation when exposed to temperatures that are about 60º F (15º C) higher than NBR can withstand, making it suitable for applications such as head gaskets and intake manifold gaskets.
Fluoroelastomer can withstand temperatures up to 165º F (75º C) higher than HNBR without degradation, making it suitable for use in diesel and gasoline engine head gaskets and other applications requiring higher heat resistance.
