Alliance Polymers Introduces Soft & Clear TPEs for Consumer & Personal Care Applications

A new, clear grade of Polymax Maxelast® C-Series thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) comprising one of the most complete product lines of soft and clear styrenic TPEs available, has just been introduced by Alliance Polymers & Services, LLC (APS). Suggested applications range from soft gel shoe insoles and health and exercise equipment through harder grades for child and pet toys as well as a wide range of consumer and personal care applications.

With one of the broadest range of Shore A hardnesses of TPEs available on the market O Shore A to 99 Shore A the new non-toxic and environmentally friendly, odorless Maxelast C-Series of TPEs is also latex and phthalate-free. The C-Series is suggested as excellent alternatives to silicone and PVC and can be overmolded onto polypropylene or polystyrene. Further, the ultra-soft grades are ideally suited for gel shoe insoles and exercise paraphernalia where softness combined with durability (i.e. mechanical strength and rapid elastic recovery) are required.
