EPDM For The Future
Technical Seminar with ExxonMobil in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
EPDM was introduced to the Vietnamese rubber industry recently due to its good ozone compatibility, heat resistance and versatile outdoor applications. The strong growth of the Vietnamese economy has generated much interest and demand for high performance rubber goods, driving many local manufacturers to obtain a better understanding of EPDM technology.

On 13 December 2016, Behn Meyer Vietnam cooperated with ExxonMobil Chemicals and the Ho Chi Minh Rubber Association to hold a technical seminar in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Behn Meyer invited its partner, ExxonMobil, to introduce the latest metalocene technology, as well as their Vistalon™ EPDM and Exxon Butyl™ ranges for industrial application.

ExxonMobil Chemicals is the global leading manufacturer of EPDM and butyl in the rubber industry. With more than 55 years of experience, they have been consistently bringing innovations, both in process and product technology, to the rubber industry. They supply an extensive range of products, which include Vistalon™ EPDM, regular butyl (Butyl 268™), halobutyl and the Exxpro™ range of products with excellent quality and global supply chain security to serve the Vietnamese market.

Their experts from the US, India, Korea, and Singapore joined in the seminar, providing insights on the EPDM industry’s developments and applications. They presented detailed applications of EPDM for heat-resistant conveyor belts, industrial hoses and other technical parts such as seals, gaskets, profiles and cables.

There was a great deal of interest from the audience, and lots of questions were raised during the Q&A session, in which many participants obtained practical solutions to R&D as well as existing production issues.

Mr. Nguyen Quoc Anh, Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh Rubber Association, verbalized his appreciation to Behn Meyer Vietnam and the ExxonMobil team for organizing this seminar, ending with the hope that more technical seminars would be planned in the future to help elevate the Vietnamese industry to the global stage and accelerate the region’s development.

Behn Meyer remains true to our commitment to be the technical solution provider for our local customers and the industry.
