THERMOLAST R RC/UV/AP stands out with its exceptional adhesion to PP, UV resistance. Available in elegant black color, it is the ideal material solution to meet the demanding needs of Asia Pacific’s automotive market.

Minimizing Environmental Impact
An essential aspect of this innovative TPE series lies in its commitment to environmental responsibility. By incorporating 15-40% recycled content from post-consumer materials, KRAIBURG TPE has taken a significant step towards minimizing the environmental impact of automotive production. This circular economy approach reflects the company’s dedication to sustainable practices within the automotive industry.

Material Advantages
With a post-consumer recycled content of 15-40%, our TPE actively contributes to reducing the ecological footprint, embodying sustainability and responsible manufacturing practices. Engineered to withstand challenging outdoor conditions, it boasts exceptional weather resistance, ensuring optimal performance and durability. Its seamless adhesion to PP materials enhances component integration and longevity.

The TPE’s low density contributes to lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicle designs, while its impressive temperature stability up to 90°C ensures material integrity under varying weather conditions. With a hardness range from 50 to 90 Shore A, it offers flexibility for diverse exterior applications. Having passed the rigorous Florida test with a 2-year cycle and achieving a GS≥4 rating, our TPE demonstrates outstanding weatherability and UV resistance.

Embrace sustainable choices with recycling-specific raw material influences and enhance the aesthetic appeal of your automotive exteriors. Choose our TPE compound series for unparalleled performance, eco-friendliness, and style in automotive applications.

The versatile attributes of THERMOLAST R RC/UV/AP make it ideal for various automotive exterior applications, including cowls gaskets, window encapsulations, applications in the new mobility segment, underbody applications, and so forth.
