Focus on France for ELASTO at FIP 2014

“Customer-orientated solutions from one of the most comprehensive portfolios of TPE and flexible polymer compounds in the market, this is what we will be presenting at FIP 2014”,  announced Pascal Gruyer, Directeur Commercial France for ELASTO.

ELASTO is part of the HEXPOL TPE group, the international TPE specialist with production operations in UK, Sweden, Germany and China. The focus for ELASTO at the French fair will be a number of solutions that address growing trends and application requirements across key French industries :

  • Dryflex TPE adhesion compounds for PA, ABS, PC and PS substrates in multi-component processing
  • Dryflex low density TPE compounds for automotive applications
  • Mediprene TPE compounds for medical applications
  • Lifoflex FLAM halogen free flame retardant compounds for electronics and construction applications
  • Lifocork compounds that combine the low weight, sustainability and feel of cork, with the processability of plastics

At FIP, alongside its extensive portfolio of thermoplastic elastomers, ELASTO will also demonstrate its commitment to the French market. Dominic Philpot, Managing Director at ELASTO UK explained “We have a long and proud history of supplying unique TPE products to our French customers, backed by an in-depth knowledge of their application and processing requirements. We place a strong importance on this responsive and customer focused expertise, which is why we have appointed a number of new dedicated personnel to our French technical and commercial teams, to continue this commitment to tailored solutions, delivered efficiently and quickly”.
