RTP to produce TPV nylon compounds

Thermoplastics compounder RTP Company has obtained manufacturing rights from ExxonMobil Chemical to produce the latter’s patented Santoprene TPV (thermoplastic vulcanisate) nylon bondable thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) product line.

RTP has begun producing the products using the same Santoprene TPV technology to provide current users a seamless supply transition and will also develop new markets and applications.

The company expects that having the highest performance materials in the nylon bondable arena to their product line will strengthen their market advantage.

The materials will be marketed by RTP as their RTP 6091 Series bondable thermoplastic elastomer compounds and will continue to use Santoprene TPV technology to provide the same property profile.

"ExxonMobil Chemical has certified the products RTP Company is producing are equivalents to their materials," said Scott Mumm, Strategic Accounts and Alliances at RTP.

The RTP 6091 Series compounds, when over moulded, provide excellent bond strength with rigid nylon substrates. They are available with hardness of 55 to 85 shore A and in natural, black, and custom colors.

Nylon bondable TPV compounds offer superior thermal resistance (up to 275 F/135 C), excellent chemical resistance, and better compression properties than alternative styrenic-based nylon bondable TPE materials.
