TPE Magazine Paper Download: Bonding Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) to Polyamides
Star Thermoplastics Paper on TPE Overmolding Onto Polyamides
This paper, published in the May, 2021 issue of TPE Magazine, discusses how new innovations in thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) have led to achieve significant bonding to wide variety of polyamides (PA) comprising of PA6, PA6.6, and PA12, and glass fiber reinforced PA. These innovative TPEs offer value compared with several competitive materials, with equivalent or better performance, and ease of processability. The softer polyamide overmolding grades have remarkably better oil resistance compared to leading competitive overmolding TPE grades. These TPEs are being evaluated in a wide range of polyamide overmolding applications.
