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 140Â°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
So much to choose from on the KRAIBURG TPE stand
Since KRAIBURG TPE is a specialist provider of client-specific customized TPE solutions for applications within the consumer, medical, and automotive sectors, the emphasis at FAKUMA is also very much on meeting people face to face. As such, plastics processors will enjoy access to an 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, and visitors to the trade fair will be able to try it out as much as they like.
