Thermoplastic Elastomers

Faraprene™ TPE/TPV/TPO

Primex Color, Compounding & Additives is recognized in the plastics industry for our Faraprene™ series thermoplastic elastomers (TPE/TPV/TPO). Decades of  research and engineering have made the Faraprene product line unparalleled for durability, flexibility and critical physical properties.

Faraprene C is available in various hardness levels from Shore A 30 through 85. It is an ideal replacement for thermoplastic rubber and PVC-based elastomers in a wide variety of applications requiring highly elastic properties. In addition to outperforming other competitive thermoplastic elastomers in scratch and tear resistance along with elastic behavior, Faraprene is also an ultra-low extractable material, making it ideal for many consumer and industrial applications. Faraprene is 100 percent recyclable and contains no phthalates as found in PVC-based materials. It’s a superior choice for molders and manufacturers attempting to reduce their environmental impact.

All Faraprene C-Series grades can be formulated to FDA compliance standards so they can be used in many consumer end-use applications.

The Faraprene™ H300 series of elastomers is intended for general use in a wide variety of injection molded products and adheres well to polyolefin (i.e. PE, PP) substrates. Faraprene adds soft touch and grip to many household, industrial and OEM products. It’s a lightweight and durable product that can be custom-compounded to meet specific needs such as color and UV resistance and comes in a range of hardness from 25 to 95 Shore A.

The Faraprene™ F301 series of elastomers is intended for a wide variety of injection and extrusion applications where compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR, Title 21, Chapter 1, Subchapter B) is required. They are ultra-soft, flexible and easily colorable to provide soft touch, durability and a comfortable grip to products. PCC&A custom-formulates all our TPE lines to meet specific customer needs, adding characteristics such as color, UV protection and other properties. Faraprene F301 is available in hardness levels from 45 to 65 Shore A.
