KRAIBURG TPE at A-Plas 2018

ktpe-a-plas-pree-picture_small.jpgKRAIBURG TPE is highlighting its new thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds for soft-touch automotive interior applications at the A-PLAS exhibition, to be held from September 19 to 22, 2018, at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand. In addition, at Booth G2-1 Hall 103, the company will display a full portfolio of its market-driven and customer-oriented developments for TPEs.

New compounds for soft-touch automotive interior applications

With FG/SF, the new THERMOLAST® K series and latest innovation for the automotive industry, KRAIBURG TPE is expanding its portfolio in this growing market segment. The series comprises several compounds in the Shore A hardness range between 50 and 80 with excellent surface properties for automotive interior parts – properties that include reliable adhesion to polypropylene and good abrasion resistance. The materials can be processed at relatively low pressures. Along with the standard black and natural colours, customer-specific colours are also available.
The new FG/SF compounds also comply with all common OEM standards for components used in automotive passenger compartments in relation to emission and smell as well as UV-resistance. The target applications range from floor mats and anti-slip mats with complex geometry that require enhanced surface quality to decorated surfaces and functional parts with a pleasantly soft touch, such as thumb wheels and switches.
