Effective today, the High Performance Foams Division of Rogers Corporation (NYSE: ROG) has officially changed its name to Elastomeric Material Solutions to better reflect the growing range of products and capabilities available to meet customer needs.
“This name change is the result of productive input and dialogue with customers and employees from around the world,” said John Quinn, Vice President, Elastomeric Material Solutions. “Elastomeric Material Solutions more clearly reflects who we have become through years of innovation and development, and where we expect to be in the future. More than just foams, we are a technology-based material solution provider.”
Elastomeric materials are, by definition, any resilient material composed of chainlike molecules, or polymers, that recover their original shape after being stretched. Rogers Elastomeric Material Solutions 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.
“Our name change makes clear our desire to expand our product range. We are looking to continue to offer our customers targeted solutions they can trust and rely on to get the job done,” concluded John. “It is core to our brand, and that will continue.”
