In this chart, 5 denotes the most important of the properties (under "Relative Importance", and the best-performing elastomers for each property. The Performance Index was obtained for each elastomer by multiplying its performance in each property by the relative importance of that property, and summing. For convience, the Performance Index has been scaled so that the best elastomer (Castable Urethane) scores 100.

* This bulletin describes only castable VIBRATHANE elastomers. For VIBRATHANE millable gum, please see the bulletin VIBRATHANE 5004.
