Reduce Cost with Maxelast® P2 Series of TPE's

Alliance Polymers & Services (APS), the exclusive North American distributor of Maxelast® brand of TPEs used by leading products manufacturers*, has introduced their new line of thermoplastic elastomers to help designers and processors significantly reduce their TPE costs with low prices for less demanding applications.

“Rising prices across the board for thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) prompted technicians at Maxelast to develop a series of low-cost grades  that process, perform and look like more expensive grades,” says Ron Sheu, TPE Marketing Manager at APS.  “They are ideally suited for designers and processors who don’t necessarily want or need the increasingly high prices for overmolding (onto PP) or stand-alone applications such as tool grips, pen grip and other stationery products, personal care items, and luggage handles.”

“As marketers and manufacturers continue to be squeezed by raising prices of engineering and specialty polymers,” continues the APS spokesman, “ the introduction of the Maxelast P2 line of TPEs, offered  at up to 30% less than they currently are paying means they can either hold, or reduce, end product pricing to remain competitive.  Maxelast has been able to achieve this pricing breakthrough by using the latest production efficiencies and keeping extra/not needed elements out of the formulations.”

Features and specifications of the new P2 low end Maxelast TPEs include good colorability, a Shore A hardness range of 20A to 90A, a tensile strength of 120 psi (ASTM D412) and a tear strength of 340 pli.  APS can provide samples on request for molding trials and can ship small to large production runs of the TPE.

Polymax's TPE material complies with UL, VDE, FDA, RoHS and PAH's standards.

Nike, Adidas, Stanley, Nokia, Panasonic, Samsung, Buick, and VW to name a few use Maxelast® thermoplastic elastomers.  Find out why Maxelast® is North America’s newest and fastest-growing line of TPEs .
