elastomer

(ĭlăs`təmər), substance having to some extent the elastic properties of natural rubberrubber,
any solid substance that upon vulcanization becomes elastic; the term includes natural rubber (caoutchouc) and synthetic rubber. The term elastomer is sometimes used to designate synthetic rubber only and is sometimes extended to include caoutchouc as well.

. The term is sometimes used technically to distinguish synthetic rubbers and rubberlike plastics from natural rubber.

elastomer

[i′las·tə·mər]
(materials)
A polymeric material, such as a synthetic rubber or plastic, which at room temperature can be stretched under low stress to at least twice its original length and, upon immediate release of the stress, will return with force to its approximate original length.

elastomer

A macromolecular material (such as rubber or a synthetic material having similar properties) that returns rapidly to approximately the initial dimensions and shape after substantial deformation by a weak stress and release of the stress.

elastomer

(ELASTic pOlyMER) A soft, compliant, rubber-like material. See elastomeric connector.
