AURORA PLASTICS MATERIALS
TPR: Thermoplastic Rubber
Aurora Plastics is a leading manufacturer of Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) Compounds that are available for a wide-range of applications. These compounds are formulated using Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS) or Styrene-Ethylene/Butylene-Styrene (SEBS) block co-polymers. These materials have many of the same properties as vulcanized rubbers, 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.
Some typical applications of TPR compounds are footwear products, gaskets, cable jacketing, toys, automotive applications, soft touch over-molding and general purpose molded goods. These compounds can be formulated to provide weather resistance, ozone resistance, low temperature flexibility as well as excellent resistance to many chemicals. They are light weight and can be colored to meet your requirements.
