TPE for Injection Moulding

 

Dryflex SE is our standard TPE range. It is extremely adaptable and can be used advantageously in many applications. The compounds are easy to process and are optimised for injection moulding. We have developed endless formulations to fulfil different properties and application requirements to optimise the finished component. Grades with improved compression set properties, high temperature resistance or more cost efficient values are an essential part of today’s wide product spectrum.

Dryflex SE : unfilled series
The Dryflex SE unfilled series is favourable when translucency and good scratch resistance are required, as well as when there are high surface finish requirements. The material enables an easy and secure pigmenting. Unfilled grades have excellent flow and mechanical properties. The low density results in lower weight compared to the filled and semi-filled series. Dryflex SE unfilled compounds are available in hardness from 30 to 90 Shore A in natural and black colours but they can easily be coloured.

Dryflex SE : filled series
The most significant features of the Dryflex SE filled series are an improved heat stability. A filled material reduces the stickiness and sink marks on thick details but has limited scratch resistance. The filled grades generally allow for fast demoulding and shorter cycle times. Compounds in the Dryflex SE filled series are available in hardness from 30 to 90 Shore A in natural and black colours but they can easily be coloured.

Dryflex SE : semi-filled series
The Dryflex SE semi-filled series is recommended when the properties of the produced detail requires the advantages of the unfilled series in combination with the filled series. A semi-filled material can therefore combine the advantages of the other two series. The material has good flow and mechanical properties as well as reasonable scratch resistance. Compounds in the Dryflex SE semi-filled series are available in hardness from 30 to 90 Shore A in natural and black colours but they can easily be coloured.
