Dryflex V - Thermoplastic Vulcanisate (TPV) compounds

Dryflex V is a range of high performance Thermoplastic Vulcanisate (TPV) compounds designed for demanding and dynamic applications.

They are composed of a highly vulcanised rubber phase dispersed throughout a thermoplastic matrix and combine the processing ease, efficiency and recyclability of a thermoplastic with the improved flexibility, low compression set and resistance to aggressive fluids of a vulcanised rubber.

Dryflex TPV compounds are used is automotive, construction & home appliance applications.

The Dryflex V range offers:

A wide range of hardness’
Grades that can be processed by injection moulding, extrusion, blow moulding and thermoforming
Service temperatures of -60°C to 135°C
Improved resistance to aggressive fluids such as oils, acids, bases and aqueous solutions
Low compression set
Low flex fatigue
Lightweight parts
Design flexibility
Excellent weathering and environmental resistance

Dryflex WS - Hydrophilic TPE compounds

Dryflex WS is a range of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), which contain hydrophilic particles. They swell at a controlled rate and percentage, with swell rates from 300 to 1000% when immersed in water. When there is no longer water present the compound shrinks back to its original size, a process that can be repeated an almost unlimited number of times.

Dryflex WS materials are used in applications to form a positive seal and prevent the ingress or exit of water. We have also developed softer grades which offer excellent drapability. They are an ideal choice for water stop applications where the profiles may be coiled or need to be fitted around complex structures.

Compounded in any colour, the water swellable TPE is 100% recyclable and can be processed using conventional plastic fabricating methods, including extrusion and injection moulding.
