Colourful Tpes Make Soft, Latex-Like Films
01 April 2001
New thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds from Teknor Apex enable
suppliers of film for medical and personal hygiene products to achieve
the softness, 'drape' and dry-to-the-touch feel of latex (without the
allergenic reactions observed in some latex users), while taking full
advantage of the material's ease of colouring. Part of Teknor's Monoprene
range, the new film grades can be processed in conventional blown- or
cast-film extrusion systems, and can be coloured to virtually any hue.
