Kraiburg TPE GmbH & Co. KG, a leading manufacturer of tailor-made soft thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) for specialist and industrial applications, has extended its range of HFFR (Halogen Free Flame Retardant) TPEs. The FR1 and FR2 HFFR compound series provides UL94 V0 classification for injection molding and extrusion applications, in particular for polypropylene, for wall thicknesses down to 1.5 mm. Further special HFFR compounds are adapted for polar thermoplastics such as ABC, PC and certain polyamides. These compounds are halogen free (as specified by IEC 61249-2-21) and so have reduced harmful gases in case of fire, so meeting EU Construction Product Regulation (CPR) and railway EN 45545 standards. The compounds offer attractive tactile properties, such as soft touch and good grip. Applications include electrical and electronics connectors and sockets, cable coatings and clips, furniture components, window gaskets.
