KRAIBURG TPE offers a range of THERMOLAST M TPE compounds for respirator devices.

The THERMOLAST M series compounds are sterilizable with superheated steam of 121°C or 134°C, γ-gamma ray treatment (2 x 35 kGy), β-ray (electron beam) treatment (2 x 35 kGy) and EtO gas.


They are safe to use in medical applications, these compounds are free of latex, PVC, and phthalates, and produced without the use of heavy metals.


Additionally, the THERMOLAST M compounds possess good durability, flexibility and high elasticity, that are suitable for use in flexible connectors, membranes, seals and valves as well as for breathing therapy devices such as oxygen tube, nebulizer-tubing, aerosol mask, mouthpiece, flexible connectors, portable nebulizer, valve (mouthpiece), and nasal douche (lid & connector).


THERMOLAST M series also has good adhesion to a range of polyolefins such as PP, PE, COC and COP; and technical thermoplastics such as ABS, PC, PET-G, as well as polyamides by multi-component injection molding.


The compounds can be processed through injection molding and extrusion,  and have good compression set characteristics.


Lastly, KRAIBURG TPE provides services on coloration and color matching to individual color samples, all compounds can likewise be obtained in any given color.
