Soucyprene® is a patented rubber compound that revolutionizes the performance of defence and mining sectors.

Developed in 2011 by Soucy Techno's Research & Development (R&D) team to meet the specific requirements and conditions of the defence and mining markets customers, Soucyprene® optimizes the attributes of Kevlar® fibres and nanotube technology.

Kevlar® aramid fibers are among others used in the clothing sector to increase fabric protective capacity and cut resistance. Lightweight, durable, and extraordinarily strong, Kevlar® fibres are also use in ballistic body armors.

Nanotubes are made of solid, flexible, lightweight and deformable materials which easily adapt to different surfaces (carbon). It has been shown that the rupture resistance of nanotubes is 100 times greater than steel.

Soucyprene® is an extremely strong, flexible, durable, and light rubber that also has the following characteristics:

  • Excellent resistance to abrasion, wear and cracking;
  • Remarkable heat tolerance and adaptability to different surfaces (tundra, desert, snow, etc.);
  • Considerable reduction of vibrations;
  • Sustainable and long lasting increased performance;
  • Excellent return on investment.

Numerous tests on sandy and rocky fields have been carried out to prove the performance and durability of Soucyprene®. The pictures below show the Soucyprene® difference on a molded rubber track of a 33-ton vehicle after 3,000km.

"Originally, our rubber could support a vehicle of up to 20-ton. But through our Soucyprene® rubber, the vehicle is able to support up to 40-ton", said François Bédard, General Manager, Soucy Techno Inc.

These tests have thus eloquently demonstrated the great durability, robustness, and efficiency of the exclusive formulation of Soucyprene® rubber.
