AURORA PLASTICS MATERIALS
Nitrile/TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers)
Aurora Plastics offers a complete line of Nitrile TPEs.
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.
Our team will also work with you to complete the formulation, with fillers in order to offer more specific properties, like reduced shrinkage, increased weight, pigment, lubrication, biocides, UV and chemical resistance.
AuroraFlex™ products can be used in a wide range of applications across many markets, including the automotive aftermarket, construction, furniture, footwear, hose and tubing, recreational and wire coating. For the footwear market, the Nitrile TPE materials allow for excellent oil resistance, abrasion and slip 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.
