AURORA PLASTICS BRANDS
Aurora’s AuroraFlex SL products are ideal for door-bottom sweeps, refrigeration door gaskets, window gaskets and more. Standard PVC will wear over time, causing tearing. Tearing and overall wear creates a gap at the bottom of the threshold. Aurora’s solutions pass industry abrasion tests with no wear at all. Abrasion resistance is significantly improved with increased tensile and elongation properties. As a result, your customers will save energy and money.
Benefits of AuroraFlex SL in injection molding (TPE/PVC) include faster injection molding cycles, lower colorant usage, brighter/better appearance, improved wear and abrasion resistance, resistance to soiling, improved hydrophobicity, easy assembly of interlocking features and energy damping properties.
Taber data taken from our TDS for G 3473SL shows that after 1000 cycles on the abrasion wheel, standard flex PVC of the same durometer had a weight loss of 7.5% as opposed to the AuroraFlex SL that only lost .4% weight.
AuroraFlex SL has 95% better wear resistance than standard flex PVC.
