OnFlex S High Temperature TPE substitutes rubber in seals and gaskets applications

The company sought improved tensile strength and equivalent compression set versus rubber, together with the ability to process the parts on its thermoplastic moulding equipment to streamline manufacturing. OnFlex S High Temperature was able to meet all of the requirements.
The new Onflex grades are formulated to meet the demands of high-performance seals found in appliances, packaging, automotive, and pipe applications - particularly in high-temperature environments. They can be extruded, injection moulded, co-moulded or co-extruded to avoid assembly and enable part consolidation. Further, they provide enhanced stress relaxation for long-term sealing performance, as well as superior tensile strength, tear strength and elongation compared to TPVs, says the company. The materials can be supplied pre-coloured or can be coloured with polypropylene-based masterbatches.
