Chinaplas 2017: Kraiburg to focus on TPEs for high-end lifestyle products


At Chinaplas 2017, to be held from 16-19 May 2017, KRAIBURG TPE, located at Booth T41, Hall 11.20, will showcase its new VS/AD/HM series as part of the Thermolast K product line.

The series introduction into the Chinese market is in response to an increasing demand for high-tech materials used in the production of consumer electronics and high-end lifestyle products. Also on show will be a portfolio of premium TPE compounds and custom-engineered solutions for consumer, industry, automotive and medical applications.

The TPE compounds of the new VS/AD/HM series were developed for high-tech industry applications such as smartphone cases, headphones, remote controls or VR headsets. They also perfectly fit the needs of high-end lifestyle products such as exclusive cosmetic packaging. Features include a smooth silky surface with chemical resistance against sebum and abrasion and scratch resistance. The compounds are easy to colour, have improved adhesion performance and mechanical properties.

“Chinaplas is the trade fair highlight in the Asia Pacific region. It gives us the ideal platform for presenting our new, innovative products and getting in contact with existing and prospective customers from around the world. Our experienced trade fair team has the opportunity to identify trends and discuss new areas of application for our TPEs,” Roland Ritter, Director Asia Pacific at KRAIBURG TPE, explains.
