Consumer spending on cars with aesthetic features and high quality parts is to stimulate TPE product demand, especially for Electro-mobility (E-mobility) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, according to Kraiburg TPE.

The company showcased at CHINAPLAS 2018 its latest functional applications targeting the automotive, consumer electronics, packaging and medical sectors.

Two compounds highlighted at the show were:

1. New EPDM adhesion series for exterior, which offers short cooling times, low coefficient of friction and heat resistance up to 90°C. Typical applications include: automotive exterior, corner molding, door sills, glass run channel, window encapsulations, etc.

2. Higher-end lifestyle TPE compound, which features anti-skin irritation, scratch resistance, adhesion performance on technical thermoplastic, chemical resistance against sebum and sun screens, etc. Applications include smartphone cases, headphones, remote controls or VR headsets. They are also suitable for high-end lifestyle products such as exclusive cosmetic packaging.

The use of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) has seen significant increases, helping business explore endless product application possibilities, innovate and remain competitive. More and more product developers and product designers choose to work with TPEs because of its extraordinary mechanical properties,” said Roland Ritter, Director Asia Pacific at Kraiburg TPE.

Rapid industrialization and increased global efforts to promote environmental conservation initiatives, such as Eco, recyclability and reusability, will be the factors driving future growth, he said.

Apart from the automotive market, the consumer electronics industry will be the big focus. This is because the consumer electronic and electrical devices industries are using more TPE materials.

Having been in China since 2004, Kraiburg TPE offers a wide range of products to fit various applications, precision engineering and tailor-made solutions.

In addition to establishing a new extrusion line at company’s headquarters, Kraiburg TPE has also continuously developed the sites in North America and Asia. In the USA, the company has already relocated to a new production plant in Buford (near Atlanta, Georgia) in 2016.

Globally speaking, our performance had been very encouraging in 2017, especially within China and Asia on the macro level. We are confident of achieving even better results in 2018 and beyond, given that our global sales revenue increased by 6.6% (2017 vs 2016),” Ritter said.
