Thermoplastic elastomers.

NexPrene 9000 fully vulcanized thermoplastic materials include nine versions ranging in hardness from 40 durometer A to 50 durometer D. The NexPrene 9000 series employs a proprietary cure technology for dynamically crosslinking the elastomer-phase component that is dispersed in a continuous thermoplastic polyolfin matrix. Use of this technology is said to result in materials that offer processing and performance advantages to designers and producers of products that require soft-touch surfaces in bright colors. Because there are no moisture absorbing constituents used in producing these materials, products in the NexPrene 9000 series are non-hygroscopic; they do not absorb moisture from the atmosphere.
