Novel Developments for Overmolding Thermoplastic Elastomers to Engineering Plastics


Novel overmolding thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) have been developed based on Styrenic block copolymer chemistry to achieve prominent level of bonding to engineering plastics such as Polycarbonate (PC), Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and PC/ABS. The bond(peel) strength seen with various polar substrates are outstanding.

Effect of inorganic fillers, compositional changes on physical properties including flow, tensile, bond strength, weatherability were studied. Physical properties and application-based test results will be presented along with a few potential applications
