New distribution agreement between Coim and Teknor Apex

It will be Teknor Apex's Vinyl Division that will supply the Laripur materials. The agreement with Coim also enables Teknor Apex to broaden its portfolio by using Laripur TPU products to develop plastics compounds for use outside the wire and cable industry, according to Teknor Apex vice president Louis R. Cappucci. "We are very pleased to engage in a strategic co-operation with a high-value partner like Teknor Apex,” said Antonio Piroddi, division manager for Laripur TPU at Coim. "Their technical and commercial capabilities combined with Coim's TPU expertise and broad product offering provides a valuable new resource for wire and cable customers in North America.” Laripur compounds are available in grades ranging in hardness from 60 Shore A to 75 Shore D. They contain no plasticisers except as required for certain speciality formulations. Typical applications include cables for automotive sensor and antilock brake systems and for mining, seismic monitoring, oil exploration, and other end uses requiring ruggedness and good low temperature performance.
