Santoprene™ thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) shorten the electronic products' development cycles. Santoprene TPV bonding grades excel at overmolding onto a variety of materials, including ExxonMobil™ polypropylene. Vistamaxx™ performance polymers are also a good option for highly flexible electrical applications with halogen-free requirements.

Applications and benefits

  • Bonding: Santoprene™ TPVs are used in seals, gaskets, connectors, grips and other components across products from cell phones and printers to speakers and remote controls.
  • Parts design and flexibility: Product designers gain design flexibility with Santoprene TPVs through soft-touch feel, texture matching and excellent colorability – even with pastel and fluorescent colors. In addition, wide temperature stability (-60°C to 135°C/-75°F to 275°F) and excellent chemical, weather and shock protection enable engineers to develop precision parts that encourage product innovation.
  • Flexible applications: Vistamaxx™ performance polymers partner well in polyolefin blends and are a good option for highly flexible electrical applications with halogen-free requirements. They also help improve films used to protect surfaces of portable computers, cell phones and other electronics.
