Kraiburg TPE has extended its portfolio of THERMOLAST K thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) with a range of compounds addressing the needs of premium lifestyle products.

Introduced at CHINAPLAS 2017, the new THERMOLAST K VS/AD/HM series delivers velvety, satin-smooth surfaces and strong mechanical properties.

Apart from favorable injection molding properties, such as high flow for high injection rates and short cycle times, the material demonstrates superior adhesion to polar thermoplastics in two-component applications not only with polycarbonate (PC), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), PC/ABS blends, polyurethane (PU), acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) and styrene acrylonitrile (SAN), but also with polyamide (PA) 12 and PA 6.

New VS/AD/HM compounds feature high scratch and abrasion resistance as well as durable compatibility with chemicals typically tested in the consumer electronics industry, including human skin lipids (sebum), cream and common household cleaners. They have also proven good skin compatibility in irritation tests in relation to ISO 10993-10.

The first products of this advanced TPE technology combine a Shore A hardness in the range of 61-72 with a tensile strength up to 15MPa and a tear strength up to 30N/mm. They provide very high elongation at break (600%) and peel strength, making them suitable for very thin elastomer overmoldings.

Together with ease of coloring and high color stability, the material is particularly designed for a wide range of different premium applications.

"The development of our unique VS/AD/HM series meets with specific market for high-tech elastomers, characterized by strong global growth and especially the Chinese market," said Franz Hinterecker, CEO of Kraiburg TPE.

Typical applications for the new compounds include game console controllers, remote controls and headphones, protective sleeves for mobile phones and tablets and toys.

Meanwhile, the satin-smooth and velvety surfaces of the VS/AD/HM series is also favorable for cosmetic packaging applications. With good UV-stability and values below 900ppm in chlorine/bromine testing, it also meets essential requirements for automotive interior parts, such as control wheels and handles.
