By means of its TPE-compounds presented at the Chinaplas 2011, KRAIBURG TPE sets standards in terms of quality, service and an optimal price-performance ratio. Producers who opt for the materials of KRAIBURG TPE will get compounds which are optimally adjusted to their respective field of application.

KRAIBURG TPE’s compounds: optimal adhesion properties for any requirement
KTPE_Chinaplas_small.jpgNo matter if you want to manufacture products from the consumer segment, the medical technology or the automotive industry: KRAIBURG TPE’s thermoplastic elastomers provide the greatest possible flexibility and optimal adhesion properties on various materials. For the production of plastic panels for cars, for instance, the material of the TPE-specialist provide the best results: Even at extremely low temperatures of down to minus 40 degrees Celsius or also at extreme heat with temperatures up to 90 degrees Celsius, TPE-compounds still show the greatest possible flexibility and the best adhesion properties. This enables producers to manufacture applying injection moulding, which saves time and money. Furthermore, TPE ensure an excellent elastic recovery. Also for window glass sealings, KRAIBURG TPE compounds provide reliable sealing properties and excellent bonding to particular types of adhesive: Thus, they can be directly bound to the window glass during the overmoulding process in the injection moulding machine at a temperature up to 250 degrees Celsius. Moreover, TPE do not have to be pre-dried and cool down fast after the injection, which also reduces the cycle time.

Through the application of TPE producers therefore do not only benefit from an extended, complex functionality, but also from improved production conditions due to optimal adhesion properties. Furthermore, the application of a time and money saving multi-component process ensures a simplified logistics as well as safe and more hygienic products in comparison with assembly processes.
