New thermoplastic elastomers from Teknor Apex enable suppliers of film for medical and personal-hygiene products to obtain the softness, "drape" and dry-to-the-touch feel of latex while capitalizing on the greater colorability and productivity of TPEs, the company said. Part of the Monprene TPE line, Teknor´s new film grades provide an option against latex allergies in gloves, medical gowns, drapes and hygiene product liners and are processable in conventional blown- or cast-film extrusion systems.
