Fresh, vibrant finish for interiors
KRAIBURG TPE’s THERMOLAST® K TPE compounds offer good scratch and abrasion resistance for an array of interior applications, including floor mats, cup holders, door sill panels, cable sleeves, thumb wheels and more. They also satisfy the low emission and odor requirements defined in Fogging DIN75201 and Ordor VDA270 standards.
With the ability to render precise material color matching, the THERMOLAST® K TPE compounds ensure vibrant hues for vehicle interiors, plus meet the color-fast requirement to ensure colors will not fade easily. The TPE compounds provide a pleasant surface feel with their soft-touch elements. Also, the TPE compounds reduce disturbing ratting and creaking noises when used for damping elements.
