With a variety of high-performance rigid and flexible compounds, Aurora Plastics is a valued partner to the toy industry. Our innovative rigid ABS and flexible PVC, SBS and SEBS compounds are used for durable dog toys, bicycle parts, golf balls, whistles, flying discs, building bricks and more.
- AuroraGuard™ ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) combines the strength and rigidity of the acrylonitrile and styrene polymers with the toughness of the polybutadiene rubber. For toy applications, these grades inexpensive, durable and available in a variety of color options.
- 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.
- 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.
Our R&D experts will help you develop the formulation that meets your specific application requirements.
