TPE Compounds for Automotive Mats
We have engineered a range of TPE compounds specifically designed to address the requirements for automotive mats – the Dryflex AM range.
These materials combine the performance of thermoset rubbers with the processability of plastics. Applications for Dryflex AM materials include floor mats, trunk liners, coin mats, fascia mats and trim.
For automotive floor mats the materials needs to have high scratch and abrasion resistance. It is also critical that the material is non-slip, even when wet. The material structure of Dryflex AM compounds produces the surface finish and high friction required.
Dryflex AM materials are low odour and fogging. They require no vulcanisation and are 100% recyclable during production, making them easier to process than vulcanised EPDM with fewer steps. This means less energy is used and production is faster and more cost-efficient.
