The High Performance Foams business segment of Rogers Corporation (NYSE: ROG) has changed its name to Elastomeric Material Solutions (EMS). This reflects the growing range of products and capabilities available to meet customer needs.

Elastomeric materials are, by definition, any resilient material composed of chainlike molecules, or polymers, that recover their original shape after being stretched.

EMS produces a variety of elastomeric products such as PORON® foams, BISCO®  silicones, XRD® extreme impact protection materials, and the recently acquired ARLON® silicones. These solutions, along with a variety of other offerings, are designed into products and applications in segments where high reliability and performance are critical:

  • industrial equipment,
  • mobile internet devices,
  • planes, trains,
  • automobiles,
  • protective gear,
  • footwear,
  • medical products, and more.
