Baking up a storm with Kraiburg TPE’s thermoplastic elastomers

Mitsui Chemicals to expand production of meltblown nonwovens in Japan

Engineering materials such as thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are used to improve the properties of preparatory devices for baking. Some of these benefits include soft touch feel and chemical resistance, as they come into contact with food.

With a diverse range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom solutions for a variety of industries, Kraiburg TPE, a globally operating manufacturer of thermoplastic elastomers, offers high-quality TPE compounds that meet the requirements of preparatory devices for baking. These include spatulas, scoops and whisks handles, buttons and sealing for baking devices and more.

Baking made easy

Kraiburg TPE's food-safe THERMOLAST K TPE series of compounds are ideal for various food-contact applications because of its high-quality surface, low migration and organoleptic properties.

Furthermore, the THERMOLAST K TPE series offers good surface mapping and a wide range of hardness to allow for improved functional elements and designs of preparatory baking equipment.

Meanwhile, the soft touch surface feel adds to the advantages of the compounds in preparatory baking device.

Kraiburg TPE’s TPE compounds can be pre-colored into a variety of desired hues for better aesthetic appearance.

Some of the TPE compounds are food-safe and meet China's GB4806-2016 standard, EU Regulation No. 10/2011, and the US FDA's Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 21 and DIN EN 71-3 requirements, meeting many food-safe applications.

In addition, the TPE compounds are halogen-free (according to the IEC 61249-2-21 standard), to provide safety in equipment.

The compounds also cater to in-process recycling, enabling manufacturers to maintain a cost-effective production.
