New clear grade of Alcryn Melt-Processible Rubber

Advanced Polymer Alloys Llc : 13 May, 2006  (New Product)
Advanced Polymer Alloys announced a breakthrough in the development of a clear grade of Alcryn Melt-Processible Rubber , Alcryn MPR 2060CL. Alcryn MPR 2060CL is a true, clear grade of the highly engineered Alcryn MPR product line and offers the same superior durability, resistance to flex fatigue, chemical resistance, compatibility to PVC, and other traits of APA's Alcryn MPR. The Alcryn MPR clear grade is available in 60 Shore A durometer.
Advanced Polymer Alloys, a division of Ferro Corporation, today announced a breakthrough in the development of a clear grade of Alcryn Melt-Processible Rubber , Alcryn MPR 2060CL.

Alcryn MPR 2060CL is a true, clear grade of the highly engineered Alcryn MPR product line and offers the same superior durability, resistance to flex fatigue, chemical resistance, compatibility to PVC, and other traits of APA's Alcryn MPR. The Alcryn MPR clear grade is available in 60 Shore A durometer.

'Alcryn MPR 2060CL provides all of the processing benefits and physical characteristics users of Alcryn MPR have come to expect from such a durable material,' said Jeff Senich, business development manager for APA. 'It's a perfect material for design engineers and product manufacturers who are interested in adding a clear MPR material to the design of new products.'

Among the advantages that Alcryn MPR 2060CL offers are its bonding ability to clear flexible PVC, excellent chemical and oil resistance, easy processing in both injection molding and extrusion machines, and true rubber characteristics.

Anticipated applications, according to Senich, include watchbands, computer and electronic devices, bicycles, skateboards, toys, and more.

'There are other clear grade materials available, but nothing comes close to matching the durability, processing capabilities, and resistance to elements like oils and gas that Alcryn MPR 2060CL provides,' Senich said.
