Dryflex Green - Biobased TPE compounds from renewable resources

Dryflex Green is a family of biobased thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds containing raw materials from renewable resources. 

We have developed several compounds with amounts of renewable content up to 90% (ASTM D 6866-12) and hardness from 30 Shore A to 50 Shore D.

Applications
Dryflex Green TPE compounds can be used in many applications that currently use conventional TPE compounds, such as soft-touch grips and handles, sealing and closures for packaging, sports equipment, toys and infant care, soft-touch areas for packaging.

Processing
Dryflex Green TPE compounds can be processed using conventional thermoplastic fabricating methods, including injection moulding and extrusion.
