KRAIBURG TPE are one of the world’s largest compounders of TPE mainly under the THERMOLAST®trademark. Their portfolio covers grades from Shore A0 to Shore D50. They produce four main product families:
COPEC® - Great grip feeling and chemical resistance
Combination of feel and resistance, surface and adhesion
A completely new haptic experience differentiates COPEC® from all other plastics.
This new TPE creates a “velvety“ and “silky“ feeling, which is not sticky at all, and is dirt repellent.
But the comfortable touch is not the only highlight of this new TPE. COPEC® compounds also feature a resistance against skin oils and many detergents and are therefore ideal for products which are in frequent skin contact.
COPEC® compounds offer various advantages to users from many different sectors: Optimal flow characteristics as well as processing via economic multi-component injection moulding. Extraordinary adhesion properties on ABS, PC and PC/PBT together with COPEC®’s further material advantages make the compound an ideal solution for many applications, such as entertainment electronics.
