TPE with superior haptics
Dryflex Touch is a range of Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) designed to give a superior silky feeling and touchably soft sensation. They were also formulated with durability and product aesthetics in mind, with grades that offer vibrant colour options, UV and scratch resistance.
Several grades have been developed with properties designed for applications such as wearable technology, wrist straps, consumer electronics, protective cases, cosmetics, grips and packaging.
Alongside functionality & aesthetics, comfort and product safety are also key requirements, particularly for products that are in direct skin contact. For Dryflex Touch TPEs we have considered the following:
MEDIA RESISTANCE: Representative Dryflex Touch grades have been tested for resistance to perspiration and various skin products.
FOOD CONTACT: The Dryflex Touch SF3 series is produced from raw materials that are compliant with food contact regulations. Food contact statements are available on request.
