Advanced Elastomer Systems L.P. introduced new grades of Santoprene-brand thermoplastic elastomer with ultraviolet stability and processing advantages. Santoprene 8000 ultraviolet-stable grades are colorable and provide long-term performance for applications that are exposed to prolonged, direct sunlight. The grades are easy to process using injection molding, extrusion, blow molding or other melt processing techniques. Available in 60 and 70 Shore A durometers, the grades offer low plate-out and will not generate die buildup during long, uninterrupted extrusion runs. For more information, call 800-305-8070 or 330-849-5000.
