TRI Austin routinely develops environmentally friendly replacements for critical high performance polymer materials. Examples include a grease that is saltwater fast, but does not off-gas hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), advanced water based and high solids rubber cements, and water based hydraulic fluids. In all cases, the resultant new material is designed to meet the critical performance specifications of the legacy material.
