German rubber industry association wdk establishes TPE working group

"With the establishment of a TPE working group the wdk takes into account the dynamic development of this class of materials," said wdk managing director Boris Engelhardt. Because of their material properties and applications the establishment of a TPE working within the wdk is an appropriate and logical addition to the range of materials represented by the association, Engelhardt said. He furthermore pointed out that the expertise within the wdk in the fields of drinking water and food contact applications and regulations could be usefully applied for the technical and material requirements of TPE products. The increased attention regarding TPEs emphasises the alignment of the wdk as the central association of processors of elastomers, Engelhardt concluded.
