KRAIBURG TPE’s well-rounded TPE solutions for anti-slip mats
KRAIBURG TPE’s material solutions meet automotive OEMs’ high-performance material and soft-touch surface requirements for automotive interior applications in Asia Pacific and around the world.
An anti-slip mat is an essential interior piece designed to keep objects such as cell phones, eyeglasses, keys, and other personal accessories in place on a car's dashboard or other interior surfaces while driving, thereby preventing the driver from becoming distracted. Anti-slip mats with a soft-touch surface can also function as an attractive feature for the car's interior.
These mats are frequently made of a soft, rubber-like substance, such as thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), which provide good grip, friction, durability, flame and chemical resistance, and other suitable features.
KRAIBURG TPE, a global manufacturer of thermoplastic elastomer materials and bespoke solutions for a wide range of industries, provides high-quality TPE series of compounds for automotive interior applications.
THERMOLAST® K FG/SF/AP series gains traction in the Asia Pacific market
KRAIBURG TPE’s THERMOLAST® K FG/SF/AP series, made for the Asia Pacific market, provides high-performance material benefits to manufacturers that emphasize surface appearance and quality requirement in automobile interior design.
This series of compounds offers high flow properties, easy processing, and soft touch surface. Additionally, these compounds provide good surface mapping for processes that require complex molding designs for aesthetic reasons, and controlled emission and odor levels, making them suitable for anti-slip mat applications.
Other characteristics of the series include good adhesion to PP via the injection molding process, temperature stability up to 100°C, short processing cycle time and low density.
Furthermore, in-process recycling is a possibility for this series of compounds, meeting the automotive market's sustainability standards.
