KRAIBURG TPE Americas, a leading specialist in thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds, showcases its latest TPE compounds for the Consumer, Industrial, and Automotive markets at Plastimagen 2023. The exhibition will take place from November 7th to 10th, 2023, at the Citibanamex Center in Mexico City, Mexico (Booth 2346).
KRAIBURG TPE will be at Plastimagen 2023, where it will present new product solutions designed exclusively for the US and Latin American market, including thermoplastic elastomers with recycled content. What's special about them? For the first time, customers will be able to take advantage of different compounds with high levels of recycling derived from post-industrial or post-consumer waste streams. Additionally, these variants span the low Shore A range, covering a wide hardness range, and offer possibilities for adhesion to PA, PC/ABS, or PP. From its headquarters in Buford, Georgia (USA), the thermoplastic elastomer manufacturer is thus responding to the growing demand in the United States and Latin America sales region by providing 'ready-to-use' solutions. As part of KRAIBURG TPE's participation in the conference program, they will be conducting a Technical Talk on “Sustainable TPEs for Automotive, Industrial and Consumer Markets”. This talk will be presented by Juan Espinosa, Product and Application Engineering Manager at KRAIBURG TPE Americas.
Alberto Oba, Director of Sales and Marketing at KRAIBURG TPE Americas, comments, 'We welcome and are excited about the opportunity not only to connect with key OEMs and processors, but also to present our thermoplastic elastomer solutions for all customers and assist them in achieving their business goals.' This year, the global TPE provider will showcase..."
The new line of recycled content products expands the THERMOLAST® R compound group and enables achieving a high recycling rate. Unlike the already established products, these solutions also surpass 50% in materials with low Shore A hardness. This marks a significant milestone in the development of innovative compounds with adhesive properties. Through this launch, KRAIBURG TPE addresses market needs and the growing demand for eco-friendly materials with post-industrial recycled content (PIR) or post-consumer recycled content (PCR). These compounds align with customers' sustainability vision and assist them in reaching their own goals in this field.
Highlights of the new product lines:
- The RC/UV series for automotive exterior applications with adhesion to PP features a post-industrial recycled content of 30-50%. These compounds are suitable for UV resistance applications, while also supporting carbon footprint reduction, and are available in black color. They come in various hardness options ranging from 65 to 90 Shore A.
- The RC/FG series of thermoplastic elastomers with recycled contents designed for automotive interior applications with adhesion to PP, offering post-industrial recycled content of up to 41%, depending on the desired hardness. These compounds meet the requirements of original equipment manufacturers and their suppliers. Additionally, they support carbon footprint reduction while fulfilling emissions, fogging, and odor requirements.They are available in different hardness options ranging from 65 to 85 Shore A.
- Universal PCR TPE is available with post-consumer recycled content of up to 44%, designed for Consumer and Industrial market application. These materials offer multiple usage possibilities for applications requiring adhesion to PP. With a wide range of potential hardness (from 40 to 90 Shore A). The compounds from these series are available in gray and can be colored in a variety of ways.
