The EvopreneTM range of thermoplastic elastomer compounds was first formulated over 25 years ago. Since then the range has been continually developed, revised and refined so that today’s compounds are available to meet demanding requirements in nearly all areas of our lives – from parts for appliances, automobiles and consumer products, through gaskets, seals and fittings for construction to regulated areas such as baby products, toys, food and medical components.
Most EvopreneTM Compounds are based on styrene block copolymers (SBCs), either hydrogenated – H-SBC – (SEBS – styrene-ethylene butylenes-styrene or similar) or non hydrogenated (SBS – styrene-butadiene-styrene) or alloys of these and other compatible polymers. Various thermoplastics, process oils, fillers and stabilisers are compounded in high shear mixing equipment to produce a wide range of grades. All EvopreneTM TPE compounds are pelletised and packaged in pe sacks or in bulk containers.
SBC based EvopreneTM TPE compounds process easily on standard thermoplastic moulding and extrusion equipment at temperatures from 150 to 220°C (300 to 430°F), dependent on grade. Processing information is available in our separate Processing Guides.
EvopreneTM compounds are separated into different product ranges as indicated in the downloads to the right. We welcome your enquiries for specific grade details or further information on particular properties.
