TPEs for high-temperature applications in the automotive and industrial sectors
V compounds have been specially developed for high-temperature applications and dynamic and static stress requirements of the car manufacturing and industrial sectors.
Apart from good thermal stability, the material offers excellent hysteresis behaviour as well as outstanding compressive stress relaxation.
Apart from the "classic" THERMOLAST®
V, we also offer materials with polyamide bonding in the compound series LTP/AD/PA. This compound series combines the characteristics of modified bonding and long-term performance in a single product with exceptional properties especially suitable for technical applications and the use in car production. Thanks to the unrivalled long-term sealing properties, customers can reduce assembly costs and produce captive seals moulded to polyamide for use at high ambient temperatures.
V at a glance
- Excellent thermal stability to 140 °C
- Very good UV and weather resistance
- Scratch resistance
- Extremely good mechanical properties
- Excellent fluidity
- Smooth surfaces, even in parts with complex geometries
- Adhesion to PP
- Ideal for dynamic and static seals
V compounds are based on cross-linked SEBS. The chemical cross-linking of the modified polystyrene end blocks results in a significantly higher stability of the PS blocks, which results in the desired characteristics of the material. Chemically cross-linked HSBC compounds are produced by means of dynamic vulcanisation in double screw extruders.
