Maxelast® TPEs an Alternative to Latex

Growth opportunities in medical applications create the need for new TPE compounds designed specifically for unique demands in the medical market. In addition to meeting property and processing requirements, medical-grade TPEs must be bio-compatible and sterilisable, have low extractable levels, and maintain appropriate regulatory approval.

TPEs are attractive  alternatives to latex, which can cause  allergic reactions, and to PVC, which is under pressure in the medical market because of concerns with phthalate plasticizers and halogens

Maxelast® TPEs broad range of products include ABS/PC overmolding series, nylon overmolding series, high transparency series, flame retardant series, PP overmolding, and standalone usage series. Maxelast® TPEs can be used in a variety of processing methods including injection molding, extrusion, and blow molding.

Many Maxelast® TPEs  products meet or exceed applicable requirements of Underwriters Laboratories (UL); the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA); as well as specifications set out by other governmental, regulatory, industrial agencies and automotive OEMs.
