Spot the Difference
To help explain what we offer, we’d like to start with a question….what’s the difference in the materials below?
I could be a 40 Shore A, low odour Thermoplastic Elastomer material designed to minimise emissions from VOCs in automotive interiors.
I could be a 50 Shore A Thermoplastic Elastomer with 82% bio-content from renewable resources. Destined to be made into bike handles.
I could be a medical grade, 53 Shore A TPE, with carefully selected raw materials developed for a plunger seal in single-use medical syringe.
This is what we do….a material used to mould wheels for a toy car needs to meet very different requirements to a flame-retardant compound used in cable insulation. The extruded profile on your window glazing needs to function in a different environment to a medical oxygen mask.
We work with designers, OEMs & convertors developing customised materials that precisely match application requirements. It’s a diverse and exciting challenge, and one that has taken our materials around the globe.
This is what HEXPOL TPE offers
