Teknor Apex is growing its partnership with materials distributor Nexeo Plastics.
On Jan. 1, Nexeo began distribution of Teknor Apex's Sarlink and Monprene brand thermoplastic elastomers in Europe. The agreement includes specialty adhesion-modified grades for multi-shot molding onto a wide variety of engineering resins.
Sarlink thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) are used in sealing applications that require elasticity and long-term performance in the automotive, industrial, consumer and building and construction markets. Styrenic-based Sarlink grades provide automotive OEMs with more design flexibility and colorability for interior applications.
Monprene TPEs have a wide hardness range and broad thermal performance. These materials are used in consumer products, industrial applications and packaging, and include grades formulated for food-contact applications.
