Available in natural pellets, APS Elastomers’ Zythane® TPUs and Viprene® TPVs offer superb colorability. “Good colorability allows OEMs and processors to manufacture their end product in a variety of bold colors” adds Morin.   In addition to good colorability, they are fatigue resistant, dimensionally stable and offer very low compression set, heat aging stability, low temperature flexibility, and excellent U.V., and ozone stability. They can be processed using conventional injection molding and extrusion equipment.
