The FAKUMA trade fair from October 16 to 20, 2012 in Friedrichshafen will
see TPE specialist KRAIBURG TPE reveal yet more innovations on Stand 5303 in
Hall B5. The new developments include COPEC® compounds for consumer
electronics products, THERMOLAST® V for high-temperature applications, and
the extended THERMOLAST® M series for the medical technology sector.
When visitors to the FAKUMA trade fair for plastics processing visit the
KRAIBURG TPE stand in Hall B5 (Stand 5303), they must make sure they
actually do touch the TPE materials! The benefits of the new COPEC® series
are most fully appreciated and most impressively presented if you get a feel
for the surface yourself. COPEC® products for consumer electronics have a
real velvety feel, as well as being resistant to skin lipids and many
cleaning agents. Excellent adhesion to ABS/PC and unusually good mechanical
characteristics make for top-quality end products.
COPEC® - Combines feeling and resistance
with additional adhesion properties
Another highlight on the KRAIBURG TPE stand makes it easy to tackle the
challenges presented by high temperatures. THERMOLAST® V compounds for
applications in the automotive and industrial sectors can cope with
temperatures up to 140°C and have undergone further development for adhesion
to PA. Unique on the market, THERMOLAST® V offers excellent compression set
performance, thereby ensuring long-term application functionality.
Representatives from the medical and pharmaceutical technology sector will
also find interesting solutions from KRAIBURG TPE at the trade fair, which
the company will also be showcasing in the "Plastics in Medical Technology"
Theme Parc in the west entrance foyer. Enhancements to the THERMOLAST® M
range ensure excellent adhesion to PC and ABS, thereby opening up a further
area of appli- cation within this highly sensitive sector.
THERMOLAST® M – A safe part of the medical
and pharmaceutical industry

expert team of TPE specialists, who can discuss their individual
requirements for elastic compounds and give them an overview of the product
range. A brand-new and very helpful innovation is the KRAIBURG TPE app. This
can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store during the run-up to FAKUMA,
