A pioneer in the Flame Retardant Battery Market, Aurora Plastics polymer formulations are the premier specialty compound in the energy storage market.

Energy Storage

As a pioneer in the flame-retardant battery market, Aurora Plastics has grown to become the industry’s premier specialty plastic compounder. Our reputation in the energy saving industry is the result of a commitment to use only the highest quality raw materials, to ship only the finest custom compounds, and to provide service beyond expectation.

We provide innovative custom formulas in flame retardant polyolefin, as well as many other plastic applications designed for the energy storage industry. Our custom formulations, developed by our professional and experienced R&D staff, are used for the most demanding applications. Tested in our state-of-the-art quality and color laboratory, these compounds are guaranteed to exceed customer expectations and deliver quality finished goods.

AuroraGuard™ compounds include rigid PVC, CPVC, TPOs, and TPEs that provide high-heat, low-smoke zero-halogen and flame-retardant properties. Our extensive portfolio allows you to select an off-the-shelf compound or formulate one to meet your specific needs. In both scenarios, our expert R&D staff will work with you to determine the best formulation to meet your specific needs.

AuroraFlex™ flexible PVC is a cost-effective alternative to our thermoplastic elastomers. These compounds provide flexible PVC from 35A to 95A Shore A durometer* to semi-rigid, with specific gravities ranging from 1.15 to 1.65. We use various types of compound additives to promote plasticity and flexibility to meet specific needs, such as renewable non-phthalate, improved low temperature tolerance and biocides. When you’re looking for a compound that offers high-abrasion resistance and excellent processing properties, AuroraFlex SL is designed to produce longer-lasting materials, with no tearing.

AuroraFlex SBS and SEBS compounds utilize multiple TPE/TPR chemistries to impart high-performance properties for durability and easy processing. These materials have many of the same properties as vulcanized rubber, but can be molded and extruded using conventional thermoplastic process equipment. Thermoplastic processing provides advantages over vulcanized, thermoset rubbers, which are processed using a slower and more costly curing process. Most of our TPR formulations are 100% recyclable and are RoHS compliant.

As a cost-efficient alternative to our thermoplastic elastomers, we can provide AuroraFlex flexible PVC compounds that provide elastomeric performance. TPE options are available as low as 10A* up to 50D durometer hardness. Some of our TPEs are offered in clear, as well as oil free grades.

Our team will also work with you to complete the formulation, with fillers that offer more specific properties, like reduced shrinkage, increased weight, pigment, lubrication, biocides as well as UV- and chemical-resistance.

* NOTE: Durometer hardness is measured with a calibrated durometer using the Shore Type-A scale in a room of consistent temperature. The indenter is inserted for 15 seconds to determine if it passes the ASTM D2240-Durometer Hardness test for the desired durometer.
