Launch of hybrid thermoplastic elastomers / Alternative to crosslinked vulcanisates
Kraiburg TPE (Waldkraiburg / Germany; is unveiling a new range of hybrid thermoplastic elastomers at the “Fakuma” trade show. The company says the hybrid TPEs will meet specifications currently not available to traditional materials made by mixing thermoplastics and crosslinked elastomers, such as EPDM/PP blends.

According to Kraiburg, the new hybrid TPEs can be processed with common injection moulding machines and extrusion lines, do not require any finishing and are recyclable. The company als says the new materials are suited for use in the environment of combustion engines, lubrication and cooling systems of machines, process technology and buildings.
