KRAIBURG TPE at Plastteknik Nordic
KRAIBURG TPE will present itself with its market-oriented portfolio of thermoplastic elastomers and a comprehensive service package at this year’s Plastteknik Nordic in Malmö, Sweden. This trade show is one of the most important events in this region for sharing information on trends, new ideas and projects in the plastics industry held this year.
From May 8-9, 2019 KRAIBURG TPE will have its own exhibit at Nordic’s leading plastics fair, Plastteknik Nordic, in Malmö. The specialist for Thermoplastic Elastomers will present its comprehensive product and service portfolio at booth D.09.
KRAIBURG TPE’s trade-fair appearance will focus on the new TEH technology platform developed for automotive and industrial applications. The new thermoplastic elastomer hybrids (TEHs) enable KRAIBURG TPE to reduce the differences in performance between thermoplastic elastomers and rubber. TEH can not only be used as an economically convincing and thermoplastically processable alternative to common cross-linked rubber solutions, but they also provide attractive options for multi-component applications that are combined with technical plastics such as polyamides and thermoplastic polyesters. TEHs are due to their thermoplastic processability recyclable in the same way as traditional TPEs.
The TPE specialists will also show its wide variety of developments and applications for the consumer and medical markets.
