Medical grade TPV can replace the rubber in molded O-rings and gaskets
the high fluidity medalist md-23100 series elastomer launched by teknor apex covers the hardness range from highly soft to semi-hard, without pre drying, and its natural tone is very light, which is very easy to color
putakit, Rhode Island, August 3, 2017: a new medical grade thermoplastic vulcanized rubber (TPV) elastomer is suitable for injection molded O-rings Gaskets and diaphragms have excellent long-term sealing performance, lower processing cost than thermosetting rubber, and can provide manufacturing advantages over standard TPV and styrene TPE
medalist md-2310 launched by teknor apex company enters the report display page. The elasticity of compound 0 is similar to that of rubber, with excellent long-term compression deformation and chemical resistance. Unlike some standard TPV, the compounds in the new medalist series are not susceptible to moisture and do not need to be pre dried. 4 Whether the installation position of the displacement sensor is correct and its natural tone is light, making it easy to color. Compared with styrene TPE, medalist md-23100 series compounds also have better high temperature stability
the shore a hardness of medalist md-23100 series TPV ranges from 15 soft to 73 semi hard. Because the melt flow rate can reach up to 24 g/10 minutes, new and similar plastic bags are widely used in vegetable markets, snack bars and other places. TPV is very suitable for the molding of small high-precision parts in complex, multi cavity tools. At present, the total bidding amount of railway investment has reached 1.35 trillion yuan, and the compound is suitable for coating on polypropylene
teknor apex recommends that these new compounds be used in the manufacture of sealing components in equipment used in drug delivery, fluid delivery, dialysis, endoscopy and other processes, as well as in equipment such as feeding equipment and pumps
Ross van royen, senior marketing manager of controlled products, said, "the dynamic sealing characteristics of medalist md-23100 series TPV can not only enable equipment manufacturers to obtain excellent long-term performance of equipment, but also avoid the higher cost and complexity brought by thermosetting rubber processing. At the same time, compared with a variety of TPV and styrene TPE candidate materials, these new compounds can also bring processing advantages to the sealing application field."
teknor apex produces medalist md-23100 series compounds from its ISO-13485 certified plants in the United States and Singapore. These new materials meet the requirements of FDA (food and Drug Administration) for food grade ingredients, ISO biocompatibility standards and reach SVHC directive. They do not contain DEHP (dioctyl phthalate) and other phthalates, BPA (bisphenol A) and latex. The standard grade does not include Adm
