Polymers with a lightly cross-linked molecular structure are called elastomers.
The molecular chains can move relative freely between the cross-links giving them an elastic behavior.
Elastomers are used for rubber bands, tires, springs, etc.
Typical elastomers are rubber, silicone and polyurethane.
