Polymax Thermoplastic Elastomers Inc. has expanded a line of premium quality TPE for use in extreme condition applications.
Polymax will debut the product at the 2015 National Plastics Exposition March 24-27 in Orlando, Fla.
Developed using new product formulations and custom-engineered production machinery, Polymax said its extreme conditions application materials are designed to perform under very high and very low temperatures, during medical sterilization procedures and demanding environmental conditions. Some of the new TPEs are formulated to endure exposure to ultra-violet light, abrasion, caustic substances and flammability conditions, the company claimed.
PolymaxTPE has a full-service facility in Waukegan, Ill., which produces the company's range of more than 500 grades of thermoplastic elastomers, develops next-generation TPE innovations and provides custom-developed materials and technical service.
