With no compromise to quality, LMI Custom Mixing plays its part in reducing carbon footprint and oil dependency through revolutionary developments in EPDM sponge and dense compounds. Utilizing a new type of EPDM polymer developed by LANXESS, LMI Custom Mixing has developed a variety of new EPDM formulations that put renewable resources to use. These new innovations in EPDM compounding now provide customers an option that is based on a more long term, reliable and renewable source of raw materials.
Recognized as a remarkable breakthrough, LANXESS has begun the production of EPDM with ethylene derived purely from the renewable resource sugar cane. This bio-based form of ethylene is produced by dehydrating ethanol from Brazilian sugar cane. It is the world's first form of bio-based EPDM rubber and is sold under the Keltan
