KRAIBURG TPE, competence leader for thermoplastic elastomers, will exhibit successful design and function applications of its compounds at K 2013, the international trade fair for plastics and rubber from 16 to 23 October in Düsseldorf. At stand C-58-1 in hall 6, the TPE specialist will present to industry experts its customer applications for the Automotive, Industry, Consumer and Medical sectors.
They are pleasing both to the eye and to the touch. They are resistant to many different media and have different hardnesses. They adhere excellently to thermoplastics and feature optimal sealing, damping and anti-slip properties. In addition, they are ideal for all processing methods used for conventional plastics. In short: Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are indispensable in many application sectors. Compounds of the TPE specialist KRAIBURG TPE are used in diverse applications – as engine block logo panels, tool handles, pump dispensers for hair dye or as seals for infusion bags. The excellent properties and high quality of KRAIBURG TPE compounds enable unlimited possibilities in terms of design and function.
At the KRAIBURG TPE exhibit in hall 6, stand C-58-1 visitors will find exactly these fields of application: Automotive, Industry, Consumer and Medical. Based on fascinating applications from these sectors, a competent team of TPE specialists will inform visitors about the comprehensive product range of custom-engineered TPEs. In addition to its global activities, KRAIBURG TPE will also present the next steps to be taken with respect to expansion of the international network and the German plant.
