Footwear Compounds:

From high performance athletic footwear to work boots that protect you from harsh environments. From boat shoes that give comfort and style to snow boots designed for warmth. The footwear you are designing must withstand demanding environments. AlphaGary approaches the footwear industry with this in mind, creating specialty compounds that are also cost-effective.

Our compounds for unit soles, uppers, mid-soles, slippers and heels are designed to face challenging conditions such as extreme cold temperatures or oil and chemical resistance. Our custom formulations focus on essential properties such as durability and flexibility, and meeting requirements such as abrasion / slip resistance, surface finish, and special color matching. Our portfolio includes solid and expandable PVC and polyurethane, nitrile / PVC blends, TPE, and TPR compounds. Backed by hands-on customer service and processing assistance, we are committed to being your preferred supplier through the next generation.
