Extra-soft thermoplastic elastomer improves the ergonomics of Great Grips, a new version of the gripping aid Knobbles. Great Grips help seniors and arthritis sufferers handle doorknobs, faucets, container lids and other slippery and nontactile surfaces.
GLS Corp. of McHenry, Ill., supplies Dynaflex 6713 with hardness of only 14 Shore A for this application, and claims the TPE offers easy processing and coloring. Moldrite Products Inc. of Colorado Springs, Colo., injection molds the TPE in a four-cavity mold.
