Kraiburg TPE: Smooth Touch TPE for packaging and design

Kraiburg TPE is now offering TPE grades particularly suited for applications that benefit from a surface with optimized gliding properties. The focus is on packaging for high-quality cosmetic products but also on direct product additions for consumer products from the electronics or household sectors. The Smooth Touch Thermolast K TPEs meet standard regulations for the food sector.

The new series was developed based on formulations and experiences from the medical sector to meet the requirements for excellent frictional behavior. This is the reason why the new products are also an ideal materials solution for diverse market industries that require a surface with optimized gliding properties and want the end user to benefit from a unique touch quality. The series also provides adhesion to polyolefins such as polypropylene and can easily be demoulded. In addition, the compounds comply with REACH and RoHS requirements.
