Kraiburg TPE at Chinaplas

For the production of plastic panels for cars, for instance, TPEs from Waldkraiburg are perfectly suited: Even at extreme temperatures from minus 40 degrees Celsius up to 90 degrees Celsius, they still show the greatest possible flexibility and the best adhesion properties. Furthermore, the TPEs ensure an excellent elastic recovery.Adhesion testing plaque according to draft of VDI guideline 2019
Also for window glass sealings, Kraiburg TPE compounds provide reliable sealing properties and excellent bonding to particular types of substrates: Thus, they can be directly bound to the window glass during the overmoulding process in the injection moulding machine at a temperature up to 250 degrees Celsius. Moreover, TPEs do not have to be pre-dried and cool down fast after the injection, which also reduces the cycle time.Flexible photography from almost any perspective - The supple "Gorillapod” tripod turns that promise into reality. Joby, a US company, works with manufacturers in China and utilizes compounds formulated by Kraiburg TPE. The excellent anti-slip properties lend the tripod a perfect grip. At the same time the TPEs achieve perfect bonding with ABS, the resin used for the body of the tripod. And they can easily be dyed in any required color.Through the application of TPE, producers do not only benefit from an extended, complex functionality, but also from improved production conditions due to optimal adhesion properties. Furthermore, the application of a time and money saving multi-component process ensures a simplified logistics as well as safe and more hygienic products in comparison with assembly processes. Global network
