Product category: Olefin based thermoplastic elastomer, TPO
Elastron TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) is a brand name of the family which consists of Polypropylene (PP) and EPDM/EPR which shows rubber like properties and can be processed conventional thermoplastic method. (Such as extrusion, injection and blow moulding)
Advantages of Elastron TPO:
Ozone and UV resistance Flexible at low temperature Recyclability Resistance to acid, base and detergent Good tear resistance Non hygroscopic, pre drying is not necessary Coloured grades available Service temperature -40˚C to +100˚C
ELASTRON TPO is the brand name of a family of compounds based on PP modified with mainly EPR which shows rubber-like properties and processible in conventional thermoplastic equipment.
• Very good low temperature flexibility • Ozone and UV resistant • Excellent tear resistance • Good paintability • %100 recyclable • Allows direct colouring during processing by utilizing PE or PP based colour masterbatches • Availability of coloured grades
Elastron V is the brand name of cross-linked EPDM based thermoplastic elastomer vulcanizates. Elastron V (TPV) grades have excellent mechanical properties in order to meet our customers' expectations such as sustainability of quality, flexibility and low compression set.
Advantages of Elastron V:
Service temperature -40˚C to 140˚C Wide hardness range (30 ShA- 65 ShD) Lower density (Density changes between 0,89 and 1,05 g/cm³) Design flexibility Good resistance to acids and bases as well as oils (ex: IRM 903 , IRM 901) UV and ozone resistance Recyclable Easy processing with shorter cycle time Provides quite higher saving on the processing cost (less scrap) Low flex fatigue Flame retardant grades available Low compression set Weathering resistance
ELASTRON G is the brand name of a family compounds based on styrenic block Copolymer SEBS (styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene) and polyolefins, which shows some of the rubber properties and has the advantage of thermoplastic processing techniques.
• Is as strong as vulcanized rubber and does not require vulcanization • Provides quite higher saving on the processing costs • Remains flexible from temperatures -40° to +130°C • Is 100% recyclable • Has excellent resistance to detergents • Has grades with flame retardancy • Has up to 100kN/m of tear strength • Has excellent resistance to most acids and bases • Has grades with very low compression set • Has grades with very high abrasion resistance • Is resistant to bacterial attack and fungus growth • Is resistant to degradation at elevated temperatures • Is an excellent electric insulator with very low conductivity • Is excellently resistant to weathering, ozone, UV light, oxidation, impact and ageing. • Allows direct colouring during processing by utilizing coloured polypropylene masterbatch • Has low acute toxic potential, with many grades conforming to FDA regulations • 2-shot moulding or co-extrusion onto PS or polyolefin components
ELASTRON D is the brand name of a family compounds based on styrenic block Copolymer SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) and polyolefins (PP or PS), which shows some of the rubber properties and has the advantage of easy processing.
Remains flexible temperatures from -30° C to +65° C Has grades with very high abrasion resistance 100% recyclable Allows direct colouring during processing by utilizing coloured polypropylene masterbatch Resistant to most acids and bases Moderately UV-Ozone resistant (can be improved by special additivies)
