TPEs Offer Easy Flow.

Among four new styrenic TPEs from Multibase, Inc., Copley, Ohio, are two high-flow injection molding grades for easy processing of large, thin auto interior parts. Multi-Flex TPE A 7606 HF (70 Shore A) and TPE A 6221 A(60 Shore A) are aimed at mats for auto consoles and dashboards. Grade 7606 HF is used for a coin tray in the Chrysler Cirrus. These products are SEBS/SEPS/PP alloys based on Shell's Kraton G polymer.

Multibase also introduced two marresistant styrenic TPEs intended to replace PVC in soft, scratch-resistant parts. Multi-Flex A 6202 MR (60 Shore A) is aimed at head and arm rests, while grade A 9702 MR (90 Shore A) is used for the soft-touch can holder in the new Mercury Cougar.
