TPE Adheres to Acetal in Earpieces of Safety Glasses
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Sporty new Pheos safety glasses from Germany’s Uvex feature earpieces made with a soft-touch Thermolast K styrenic TPE compound from Kraiburg TPE GmbH (U.S. office in Duluth, Ga.).

TPE Replaces Rubber in Resealable Closure for Infusion Bags
WEB EXCLUSIVE: A two-component, injection molded resealable closure for infusion bags has been developed by Bolivia’s Matriplast SA using a special TPE from Kraiburg TPE in Germany (U.S. office in Duluth, Ga.). Matriplast specializes in plastic containers and products for the pharmaceutical industry and is also now aiming to produce high-end products such as the new ASEPTIcap closure.

MATERIALS: ‘Feel-Good’ TPE for Overmolding Consumer Electronics
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Kraiburg TPE Corp., Duluth, Ga., has come out with two new families of styrenic TPEs for overmolding onto rigid engineering thermoplastics for consumer electronics applications.

MATERIALS AT NPE: All Market Sectors Benefit from Large Crop of New Materials
Higher-performance and easier processing PE film resins for packaging, a one-pass crosslinked PE for photovoltaic (PV) wire and cable, several higher-performing nylons and TPEs, “greener” plastics, and enhanced styrenic and PC resins are among the new materials that made their debut at the big show in Orlando, Fla., last month.

MATERIALS: TPEs Boast Improved Wet Grip
WEB EXCLUSIVE: New Thermolast W grades of SEBS-based TPEs are said to offer exceptionally firm grip, even when wet. “Ground-breaking” Wet Grip technology from Kraiburg TPE, Duluth, Ga., boasts up to three times the coefficient of friction of conventional SBS TPEs and TPVs for both wet and dry applications with no negative impact on physical properties or processability in multi-component injection molding or extrusion.

Four Key Markets Drive Material Advances At K 2010
Last fall’s K 2010 fair in Germany drew dozens of materials suppliers to show off hundreds of new products, aimed especially at packaging,medical, automotive, and electrical/electronics.

K 2010 Preview, Materials Higher Performance, Better Processing, And Now Sustainability Share Spotlight at K
The K 2010 show will present new plastics materials for a wide range of industries, which makes it hard to generalize, but a few markets stand out prominently: packaging, medical, automotive, and electronic equipment.

Overmolding adhesion of TPEs is undergoing constant improvement

TPEs Move Up the Performance Scale
This first of two articles on directions in TPE development focuses on styrenic, copolyester, polyamide, and TP urethane elastomers. The following article covers olefinics—TPOs, TPVs, and POEs.

Aluminum replaces steel

What's New at the Show in MATERIALS
The major thrust in new materials at K is engineering thermoplastics for automotive, appliance, medical, and electrical/electronic parts.

Styrenic/Olefinic TPVs Take Higher Heat
A new type of TPV elastomers offers heat resistance up to 140 C for automotive and industrial applications such as window encapsulation, grommets and spouts for cable or hoses, air ducts, gaskets, and sealing profiles.

BASF's new Ultradur High Speed

K 2004 Wrap-Up on Materials: Setting New Benchmarks for Processability and Performance
 Higher flow, higher heat, higher barrier, higher clarity, higher stiffness, lower durometer, lower smoke, lower odor—materials exhibits at the recent K 2004 show in Dusseldorf were stretching the bounds of processing and performance properties in all directions.
