Licensed manufacture of nylon-bondable TPV compounds now underway

RTP Company : 20 February, 2013  (New Product)
RTP has licensed manufacturing rights from ExxonMobil Chemical for their patented Santoprene TP(thermoplastic vulcanizate) nylon-bondable thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) product line. RTP has begun producing the products using the same Santoprene TPV technology to provide a seamless supply transition and will also develop new markets and applications.

The materials will be marketed by RTP as its RTP 6091 Series bondable thermoplastic elastomer compounds and will continue to use Santoprene TPV technology to provide the same property profile.  "ExxonMobil Chemical has certified the products RTP is producing are equivalents to their materials," added Mumm.

When overmoulded, RTP 6091 Series compounds, offer excellent bond strength with rigid nylon substrates. They are available globally with hardness of 55 to 85 shore A and in natural, black, and custom colours. Nylon bondable TPV compounds offer superior thermal resistance (up to 135C), excellent chemical resistance, and better compression properties than alternative styrenic-based nylon-bondable TPE materials.

"RTP has been producing specialty TPV compounds for over a 20 years," said Scott Mumm, Strategic Accounts and Alliances at RTP.  "We are excited about this opportunity to take over production of ExxonMobil Chemical's nylon-bondable Santoprene TPV products, because their addition will expand our bondable TPE product line and give us a definite advantage by having the highest performance materials in the nylon bondable arena."
