AURORA PLASTICS APPLICATIONS
With a variety of high-performance, flexible TPE compounds, Aurora Plastics is a valued partner to the toy industry. Our innovative flexible PVC, SBS and SEBS compounds are used for durable dog toys, bicycle parts, golf balls, whistles, flying discs and more.
Unlike rigid PVC, AuroraFlex™ SBS and SEBS compounds utilize multiple TPE/TPR chemistries to impart high-performance properties for durability and easy processing. 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.
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.
