AURORA PLASTICS APPLICATIONS

Housewares & Personal Care

With a variety of high-performance compounds for houseware and personal care applications, Aurora Plastics is a valued partner to this industry. Our innovative flexible PVC, SBS and SEBS compounds are used for kitchen utensils, container lids, appliances, personal care handle grips (toothbrush, razor, hairbrush, etc.), and electronics.

We offer SBS and SEBS compounds that 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.

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.

* 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.
