POLYelast is Polykemi’s product family of softer plastic compounds based on polyolefin TPE.

POLYelast

POLYelast is a softer plastic compound based on polyolefin TPE. Polykemi manufactures materials with Shore A> 85. POLYelast is shock resistant and flexible. Polykemi offers a wide product range for injection molding and extrusion, which includes grades with mineral reinforcement or hydrolysis resistance. POLYelast is available with high color accuracy. POLYelast is suitable for the production of vehicle components and consumer goods.

Raw material

TPE (thermoplastic elastomers) are elastic materials that consist of a mixture of hard, partially crystalline parts and softer amorphous parts. Unlike traditional rubber, these materials are not vulcanized. POLYelast is made of polyolefin-based TPE and is therefore similar to polypropylene.
