Elastomers with optimal adhesion to plastics

Articles

The carbon-intensive automotive sector is responsible for about 29% of global carbon emissions; and exhaust emissions account for 65% to 80% of emissions from automobiles. The sector is thus expected to lead in stemming the rising greenhouse gas (GhG) emissions as it reduces its carbon footprint.

With carbon-neutral targets, original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and automotive makers are developing and adopting new material solutions to improve the energy efficiency of electrified vehicle. Among the hallmarks of E-Mobility, which covers a range of electrified motor vehicles including cars, drone, bikes, hoverboards, scooters, and others of this type, is the use of renewable energy and making the vehicle light weight for fuel economy. Advanced materials such as thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) compounds enable functional design, aesthetic finishing and lightweigh, thus making it a cost-effective material of choice for both the manufacturers and designer for E-Mobility applications.

THERMOLAST®TPEs above the curve in material advantage
KRAIBURG TPE has various TPE series compounds in its portfolio to support OEMs and automotive system suppliers in the E-Mobility sector. Its THERMOLAST® compounds allow good flowability, easy processability, and soft touch feel. Additional properties such as resistance to scratch, abrasion and weathering, flame retardancy, low VOC and odor emission and more ensure durable and high-quality vehicle system and parts applications.

The THERMOLAST® TPEs exhibit optimal adhesion to plastics such as PA, PP, ASA, PC, PC/ABS, PMMA, PE, PBT, SAN, and more. They can be processed through injection molding and extrusion molding.

Furthermore, the THERMOLAST® compounds range offers flexibility for customers to innovate and develop new designs and functionalities. Property profiles such as texture, adhesion, color, and the like, may be adjusted to fit customers’ requirement.

KRAIBURG TPE materials are produced with globally consistent quality standard and excellent expertise in custom-engineered TPE for E-Mobility applications.
