Consumer and food industries application TPEs for multi-component applications with PA
KRAIBURG TPE’s new compounds in the FC/AD/PA THERMOLAST® K series are aimed at manufacturers in the consumer and food industries. These materials have been developed specifically for food contact and feature excellent adhesion to polyamides (PAs).
The natural-coloured compounds are available in hardness degrees ranging from 40 to 80 Shore A. They are not only characterized by easy processing and colourability, but also by high tensile strength and elongation at break.
This makes the TPE family particularly suitable for a wide range of applications with direct food and mouth contact such as container and packaging seals, and parts of kitchen utensils and tableware. Other applications include sports items and cosmetics, as well as seals for hearing aids.
