Hexpol TPE to bring expanded range of Dryflex Green biobased TPE to Fakuma 2017


This year at the Fakuma show in Friedrichshafen, Hexpol TPE will be showing its full range of TPE materials, including its range of eco-sustainable biobased Dryflex Green TPE materials.

cWith increasing demands from consumers for the polymer industry to deliver sustainable alternatives to traditional fossil based products, a definite area of growth for HEXPOL TPE is the Dryflex Green family of biobased TPEs from renewable resources. These compounds are opening up previously unreachable design solutions to the biobased thermoplastic market by covering a wider range of hardnesses while incorporating high levels of renewable content. Typical applications include household products, sports equipment, construction profiles and automotive mats. HEXPOL TPE has further extended the range to include even softer grades, with new compounds available from 15 Shore A through to 55 Shore D. The Dryflex Green range includes grades with biobased content over 90% (ASTM D 6866), achieved by use of truly sustainable raw materials and feedstocks such as sugarcane, with recognised certifications such as ISCC+ and can derive from raw materials such as polymers, fillers, plasticizers or additives.
