Versatile, and Softens and Shapes In Use to Become More Comfortable
ROMULUS, MI (November 25, 2011) – With the goal of  eliminating the shortfalls of disposable PVC, PE and rubber gloves used in many industries, a new Maxelast® TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) has been formulated to offer numerous superior benefits.  Polymax Maxelast TPEs are sold exclusively in North America by Alliance Polymers & Services (APS).
APS will send a free sample pair of gloves to qualified inquirers.

Among the benefits of new Maxelast D Series grade D01-0421 for disposable gloves are:
  • Easy to manufacture by cast film extrusion
  • Latex and phthalate free
  • Non-toxic and odorless
  • Compliant with FDA food contact grade standards plus meet RoHS, PAHs and REACH standards
  • More comfortable than  PVC or PE gloves
  • Lighter weight and thinner (0.09 ounces per piece and thicknesses of only 0.03 – 0.04 mm, respectively)
  • Actually turns softer and shapes to a user’s hands when worn
  • Silent – no noise caused by friction
Typical uses for these breakthrough cast film extruded gloves made from Maxelast TPEs include, but are not limited to, food service applications, medical, emergency treatment, nursing care, lab test, food processing, and electronics, medical products and general manufacturing.
This grade is available and can be shipped in sizes from bags to gaylords.
