Teknor Apex is introducing a new family of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) for consumer products at Fakuma. The new Monprene CP Series compounds are said to provide vivid colour, tactile appeal and soft-grip ergonomics, as well as giving a broad range of physical properties and excellent mouldability. At the show the company is also launching a new series of styrenic block copolymer elastomers, which are said to exhibit performance comparable to that of the thermoplastic vulcanisates (TPVs) widely used in window gaskets. Teknor Apex says unlike most TPVs used for weatherproof seals in metal, wood, or PVC window frames, the new Monprene IN-23000 Series styrenic block copolymer compounds are readily available in small lots and pre-coloured grades and require no pre-drying.
