Pet Products

Anyone who has owned a dog or cat knows that having a quality toy is important for the safety of their companion. Chew toys especially need the capability to handle constant gnawing and attempts of destruction. Thermoplastics elastomers are an ideal solution for making pet products, including toys. They can be easily molded to offer a variety of textures and experiences necessary to keep the animal’s interest.
