New low-oil TPEs for medical uses

Published: September 26, 2012 6:00 am ET

Elastocon TPE Technologies Inc. has broadened its range of SEBS-based thermoplastic elastomers for medical and dental products.

Targeted applications include grips, knobs and buttons. The additions to the Elastocon CLR series have low or no oil content, the Rochester, Ill., company explains. The new grades range from 15 Shore A to 75 Shore A hardness.

Elastocon says the TPEs are odorless, and processable by injection molding and extrusion, providing high flow during processing. They are based on FDA-compliant materials, have exceptional tear resistance and provide high strength and high resilience.
