Neoflex is a range of thermoplastic elastomer compounds based on Styrene block co-polymers that include SBS, SEBS, SEPS, SEEPS, SIS, consisting of a two-phase system where the hard thermoplastic phase is coupled with soft elastomeric phase, providing combined properties of rubber like softness, feel and cold & hot elasticity along with strength and melt processability of a thermoplastic, while being 100% recyclable.
Neoflex™ range of TPE grades are typically low modulus, flexible materials that provide superior aesthetics – soft touch, soft feel, with balanced mechanical properties of tensile, tear, and compression set, along with good weather resistance.
Neoflex™ compounds provide lower weight components due to lower density as well as lower product cost due to ease of processing and opportunity for consolidation as the materials are designed to bond to olefins, polyamides, ABS, and other engineering plastics substrates.
Neoflex™ TPE are strong, flexible materials providing excellent aesthetics with translucency or vibrant colours and silky haptics along with long term performance compared to thermoset rubbers and PVCs.
Wide hardness range from 8 Shore A to 60 Shore D
Lower density, range starts at 0.90 gms/cc
Wide service temp from -40°C to 120°C
Good compression set and fatigue resistance, along with high elastic recovery within a wide temperature range
Good resistance to UV-aging, ozone, weathering, bases, acids, alcohols, water solutions, detergents etc.
Excellent scratch & abrasion with low coefficient of friction, as well as low fogging, odour and VOC
Soft Flexible & Dry Feel, Excellent Grip with superior colorability, aesthetics, translucency and transparency
Ease of processing on standard thermoplastics processing equipment with high flow for long & thin parts, shorter cycle times
