GLS Corp. has added a super-soft, gel-like 30 Shore 00 thermoplastic elastomer for injection molding and extruded applications. Non-oily, non-tacky Versaflex CL2003 is water-clear and offers good surface appearance, making it ideal for applications requiring a very soft touch, gel-like feel. Uses for the new TPE include gel inserts for bicycle saddles, shoe sole inserts and handles or grips for disposable personal care items such as hair and toothbrushes, according to the company.
