TPE alloy products. (Literature: materials).

Literature is available detailing the use of TPEs (thermoplastic elastamers) to meet design challenges from client National Detroit. The literature describes how the company helped create a power tool with a TPE alloy from the Versaflex TPE alloy line. As described in the literature, the Orbit Sander required a strong visual appeal and a soft touch feel in the hand. Versaflex OM 6050X was recommended because of its soft touch, adhesion to nylon and ease of coloration. Versaflex TPEs are designed for multi-shot molding or insert overmolding onto a variety of substrates, including nylon 6/6 and nylon 6. They are said to provide an ergonomic soft touch feel for a variety of applications, including power tools, grips, steering wheels and others. (GLS, 833 Ridge View Dr., McHenry, IL 60050-7050)
