Chemiton XT® - TPE compounds SEPS/SEBS and TPO based

Under the latest brand name Chemiton® XT Franplast is classifying the series of products based on SEBS especially for extrusion and co-extrusion.

Chemiton® XT compounds ensure the production of extruded parts with exceptional flexibility, resistance to high and low temperatures and various levels of insulation. There are also crystal clear grades available which are completely plasticizer- free and with excellent UV and ozone resistance.

Chemiton® XT compounds are successfully used in different areas: medical technology, construction, electrical applications, home & design and automotive.

Indeed, the wide range available makes it possible to cover all the inquiries in terms of applications, from the traditional ones to the most challenging and innovative ones like multi-layer tubes (also for fatty food contact), tubes for peristaltic pumps, profiles (also with magnet), sealing, profiles for typographic applications, very thin co-extruded parts for tubes and bars (i.e. brooms).

Particularly grades for co-extrusion with adhesion onto styrenics, onto common polyamides and polyolefins are available.

Translucent USP Cl. VI - TPE compounds SEPS and SEBS based

Chemiton Med®, the translucent SEPS based, USP Cl. VI compound, is the perfect TPE for medical applications. Without PVC and latex, biocompatible and without phthalates, it is a transparent and soft thermoplastic rubber, which represents an optimum alternative to silicone.

It can be used for the realization of various soft touch components for medical use as injection ports, twist off closures, connectors, tubes for peristaltic pumps, joints, stoppers, gaskets, valves and membranes.

The translucent Chemiton Med® USP Cl. VI compound is biocompatible for haemolysis and cytotoxicity and conform with intracutaneous reactivity and acute systemic toxicity; furthermore it’s suitable for intramuscular implantation.

The medical devices produced with Chemiton Med® can be sterilized with autoclave, EtO and gamma radiation.

This compound can be processed as well as by extrusion, injection moulding and film blowing.

Disposes of DMF registration at FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
