How would you use it?
Dryflex WS materials are used in applications to form a positive seal and prevent the ingress or exit of water. We have also developed softer grades which offer excellent drapability. They are an ideal choice for water stop applications where the profiles may be coiled or need to be fitted around complex structures.
Compounded in any colour, the water swellable TPE is 100% recyclable and can be processed using conventional plastic fabricating methods, including extrusion and injection moulding.

Hydrophilic TPE - How does it work?
Fig 1 : The hydrophilic ingredient is compounded into the Dryflex WS TPE at the time of manufacture.
Fig 2 : After immersion in water the Dryflex WS TPE will expand uniformly, at a controlled rate and percentage.
Fig 3 : When there is no longer water present the Dryflex WS TPE shrinks back to its original size.
