The HEXPOL TPE group, which brings together the ELASTO and Müller Kunststoffe businesses, has expanded their commitment to the CIS and Baltic states with the appointment of Telko (Helsinki, Finland) and Forplast (Riga, Latvia) as distribution partners.
The ELASTO and Müller Kunststoffe businesses have worked with Telko and Forplast respectively for a number of years. Under the terms of the new agreement, Telko and Forplast will now be supporting the market expansion of HEXPOL TPE’s full range of Dryflex and Lifoflex TPE products, throughout the CIS and Baltic States.
Dryflex and Lifoflex TPE compounds include grades based on TPS (SBS and SEBS), TPO and TPV technologies. They are used extensively in the consumer, industrial, automotive, electronics and construction markets. The portfolio includes several fully customisable series including halogen-free flame retardant, conductive, extrusion profiles, automotive mats, adhesion grades for 2K applications and compounds offering improved compression set performance.
Forplast will also continue to work with the group’s range of complimentary flexible polymer compounds including Lifolit soft PVC, Lifocork cork compounds, Lifoprene TPU and Lifobatch colour and additive masterbatches.

That is why we will be working with both Telko and Forplast in these regions.
