Elastocon TPE Technologies Inc. has developed exceptionally clear thermoplastic elastomers that also bring toughness to end-products.
The Rochester, Ill., company says new grades in its CLR series are suited to buttons and knobs on medical equipment and grips for medical and dental utensils. The odorless compounds can be injection molded or extruded. The oil-free formulations include high tear resistance and high flow for processing into complex shapes.
Elastocon reports the new grades have Shore A 65 and 75 hardnesses and are compliant with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The TPEs are easily tinted and recyclable.
