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.
