ELASTO at Interplas 2011
'Made to measure TPE solutions that help our customers be more successful', this is the message ELASTO will be delivering at Interplas.
ELASTO will be showcasing the array of properties and design possibilities their range of TPEs has to offer. With a hands-on, interactive display visitors to stand G47 will be able to experience the flexibility, elasticity, adhesion, grip and even swellability of their Dryflex and Mediprene range of compounds based on SBS, SEBS, TPO and TPV technologies.
Dryflex TPE compounds are available in hardness’s ranging from zero shore A to 65 shore D, they offer transparency, good compression set, abrasion and tear resistance, high-flow rates and adhesion to engineering thermoplastics including PP, PE, PA, ABS, PC, PS, PMMA, ASA, SAN and their blends. ELASTO will showcase several applications from the automotive, consumer, construction and toy markets where their compounds have simplified production for their customers and added-value with soft-touch appeal.
ELASTO will also be presenting the advances in their Mediprene® range of TPE Compounds for medical device applications, including grades that do not contain any paraffinic oil which minimize the risk of leaching and extractables. Mediprene® compounds are sterilizable with gamma, EtO and steam and representative grades have passed cytotoxicity tests according to ISO 10993-5 and biocompatibility tests according to USP Class VI. Mediprene® TPEs have also proven to be strong alternatives as replacement for PVC; they are completely synthetic and latex free thereby minimizing allergy risks.
At Interplas ELASTO will be presenting two papers at the Plastics Design Intelligence Seminar. Martin Bradbury will be presenting ‘Flexible Solutions that Bridge the Gap between Rubber and Plastics’ on 28 September at 12:00 and Jonathan Coupe will present ‘The Feel Good Factor - Exploring Haptics in Product Design’ at 12:00 on 29 September.
