HEXPOL TPE to Present at VDI TPE Conference

Dr Kjell Fagerström, managing director at ELASTO Sweden AB, part of the HEXPOL TPE family, will be presenting a paper on ‘Optimal 2-K TPE Moulding onto Preferred Engineering Substrates’ at the VDI TPE conference taking place in Nürnberg, 16 April 2013.

The conference is themed around two component manufacturing and the role of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) in multi-component applications. The conference will investigate the principles and mechanisms in multi-component technology and potential uses.

HEXPOL TPE’s paper will outline the design challenges when developing combined material technologies. Exploring how details made of thermoplastic that show soft-touch qualities or integrated seals can differentiate products, increase consumer appeal and add brand value. Dr Fagerström will demonstrate successful examples of multi-component applications.
