KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a wide range of TPE products and custom solutions for multiple industries is debuting its all new medical and healthcare TPE series at the Medical Manufacturing Asia and Medical Fair Asia to be held from 31 August till 2 September at Booth 2M10, Marina Bay Sand, Singapore.
The medical industry has a high demand for thermoplastic elastomers because of their durability, sterility, and biocompatibility, among other benefits. The medical grade TPEs from KRAIBURG TPE are clean and pure, allowing for the highest processing safety standard. By using multi-component injection molding, they provide excellent adhesion to polyolefins (PP, PE, COC, COP) and engineering thermoplastics such as ABS, PC, PET-G, and polyamides. These low-friction, high-elastic, and translucent compounds also have high compression set and superior resealing properties. They can be processed by injection molding or extrusion and come in a variety of precoloring options.
KRAIBURG TPE also offers the THERMOLAST® H and THERMOLAST® M series, which cater to a variety of industry applications.
