Elastron provides TPE solutions for different segments which have different technical requirements. Anti-slip performance of thermoplastic elastomers is critical for most of the mats and strips. Flexibility at low and high temperatures combined with long term electrical insulation properties make TPE grades preferred raw materials for cable jacketing and electrical equipment.

Elastron offers proven TPE technology in its portfolio of products for electrical and wire & cable applications including halogen free flame retardant (HFFR), halogenated flame retardant (FR), general purpose TPVs and SEBS based TPEs.

Elastron provides sustainable and effective TPE impact modifiers for virgin & recycled plastics. TPE grades increase the impact strength of thermoplastics for adding value to polymers. Solutions for industrial castor wheels require good abrasion and mechanical stress resistance.

Thermoplastic elastomers exhibit good grip, low compression set and high sealing performance which provide sustainable and eco-friendly solutions for industrial applications.
