Therban® is LANXESS high-performance specialty elastomer, specially designed for demanding applications requiring exceptional durability in aggressive environments. Therban performs well in extreme temperatures, fuel, oil, ozone, and abrasion.

Therban is an adaptable high performance elastomer that can replace many other specialty materials because Therban combines exceptional performance with cost-efficiency and versatility.The applications of Therban® include Resistance to heat, oil, chemicals, and ozone, a high level of mechanical properties, and superior abrasion resistance.The main fields of application are the automotive, mechanical engineering, and oil industries. Resistance to many aggressive media means that the service life of rubber articles based on Therban® are several times longer than those based on conventional elastomers.
