DuraGrip TPE is a versatile thermoplastic elastomer that enhances the value of end products through its performance characteristics and features, including, when needed, a soft-touch feel. The DuraGrip grades, available in 30 to 80 Shore A hardness, come in easily colorable natural, black, translucent, and clear. Available grades include:

DuraGrip 6000 series the general-purpose grade that is easy to use in injection molding and extrusion processes. It bonds well to polypropylene and polyethylene.
DuraGrip 6100 series bonds well to PC, ABS, PC/ABS alloys, nylon, ASA, and other engineered thermoplastic materials.
DuraGrip 6800 series the FDA-compliant grade designed to offer very good elastomeric properties and soft-touch feel. The 6800 series processes well in injection molding, overmolding, extrusion and co-extrusion manufacturing. It bonds to polypropylene and polyethylene.

'DuraGrip TPE is a soft and durable material that will enhance any number of applications,' said Jeff Senich, APA's business development manager. 'With Jacobson's support, a whole new market can take advantage of DuraGrip's ease of processing and design versatility. It will provide molders with greater flexibility, while holding the line on production costs.'

'DuraGrip TPE is a great new product that molders in Asia/Pacific will quickly become comfortable in using,' said Kenneth Tse, director and general manager for Jacobson van den Berg (Hong Kong) Ltd. 'It's faster cycle times, performance, and price point are all important factors to molders in this region. Jacobson is looking forward to working with APA to introduce DuraGrip to our customers.'

When combined with rigid thermoplastic substrates, DuraGrip TPE adds an ergonomic soft-touch feel that can increase customer value in applications for industries including appliances, electronics, home improvement, household products, lawn and garden, office supplies, personal care, sports and leisure, and more. Additionally, its physical properties make it ideal for automotive applications.
