Teknor Apex has debuted new thermoplastic elastomers for medical and hygiene film products.
The firm said new grades of Monprene have the softness, drape and dry-to-the-touch feel of latex but are more productive and easier to color. They also allow users to avoid potential allergic reactions to latex, claimed the Pawtucket, R.I., company.
Teknor Apex said the new products are processable in conventional blown and cast film extrusion systems.
