KRAIBURG TPE has extended its TPEs portfolio series 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 series 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.

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

"Apart from automotive, the consumer electronics industry will be our next big focus," explained Roland Ritter, Asia Pacific Director of KRAIBURG TPE. "This is because the industry is increasing the demand for TPE materials. Such applications include soft straps, smartphone cases, VR headsets and so forth."

He said the company's performance has been very promising in 2016, especially within China and Asia. "Our global sales revenues increased by 7% last year compared with 2015."

The strong market momentum has carried into 2017, with over 20% Year on Year increase in the first quarter. "We are confident of achieving even better results this year and beyond."

To satisfy the increasing, Kraiburg will be expanding one more production line in Malaysia which will be ready for operation in 2018.
