Zeon Chemicals LP claims its new thermoplastic elastomer offers rubberlike flexibility.
Zeotherm 100-60B has flexural modulus similar to rubber. Its durometer is 60 Shore A, similar to many rubbers. By contrast, previous Zeotherm compounds had durometers in the 70-90 Shore A hardness range.
Louisville, Ky.-based Zeon said the new material is based on a nylon plastic phase, allowing for overmolding and welding to rigid nylon parts for structures with rigid and flexible sections.
