EVOPRENE 003 is a Styrenic thermoplastic elastomer suitable for a wide variety of applications, protected from ozone attack via careful formulating whilst the incorporation of black masterbatch provides good UV stability. Natural and light coloured grades, however, should not generally be used in applications where long periods of outdoor exposure are expected. Easy to process on standard thermoplastic processing equipment and fully recyclable at all stages
EVOPRENE 022 is a Styrenic thermoplastic elastomer suitable for a wide variety of applications, protected from ozone attack via careful formulating whilst the incorporation of black masterbatch provides good UV stability. Natural and light coloured grades, however, should not generally be used in applications where long periods of outdoor exposure are expected. Easy to process on standard thermoplastic processing equipment and fully recyclable at all stages
Product category: Compounds (Polymer blends), Thermoplastic elastomers dynamically crosslinked, TPE-V/TPV, Compounds of styrenic block copolymers (SEBS, SBS, SIS, TPE-S), Thermoplastic elastomers based on PVC, TPE/PVC, Electrical insulation compounds, Cable compounds
Our EVOPRENE® thermoplastic Elastomer compounds where first formulated over 25 years ago. Since then the range has been continually developed, revised and refined so that today’s compounds are available to meet demanding requirements in nearly all areas of our lives – from parts for appliances, automobiles and consumer products, through gaskets, seals and fittings for construction to regulated areas such as baby products, toys, food and medical components.
Our EVOPRENE® compounds are based on styrene block copolymer thermoplastic elastomers (SBCs). The base polymers have end blocks of polystyrene with a rubbery midblock of either polybutadiene (SBS) or poly(ethylene butylene) (SEBS).
These polymers behave like rubber at ambient temperatures but flow like thermoplastics when subjected to heat and pressure. To create the extensive range of TPE compounds, a wide selection of additives is utilized. These are added in highly intensive microprocessor controlled mixing operations, which ensures excellent dispersion.
Most EVOPRENE® grades have been formulated for specific applications then adapted for other requirements. There are a number of features which all grades exhibit and which provide a benefit to the processor or end customer:
· Easy to process on standard thermoplastics processing equipment · Fully recyclable at all stages · No degradation during normal processing · Pelletized compound is ready to use usually without pre-drying · Generally easy to color with universal or PE based master batch or with liquid colors · Suitable for molding with cold or hot runner systems · All grades are free from phthalate or similar plasticizers · All grades except the flame retardant grades (identified separately) are halogen-free
