Müller Kunststoffe developing TPE for children's tableware

[image_0]The compounding specialist from Lichtenfels developed a thermoplastic elastomer with the required properties: soft and non-slip, easy to clean and to dye, and simply to process in injection moulding. The TPE also had to be easy to assemble. All raw materials used to develop this 45 Shore A formulation comply with the new Regulation (EU) no 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. A medical grade white oil is used as plasticiser. The handles and collars are now available in eight different bright colours. Müller Kunststoffe also configured the fitting colour master batches based on the colour specifications from Ornamin. Müller Kunststoffe will inform about this new development at the Fakuma in Friedrichshafen.
