KEBAFLEX / S 35 A.01
TPE-S, Shore A31, translucent, food conform according to EU 10/2011 and FDA
TPE-S - KEBAFLEX / S
Under the trade name KEBAFLEX / S we market a range of thermoplastic elastomer compounds based on SEBS/PP. KEBAFLEX / S is available in various Shore hardnesses from below A10 to above D50 and is often used as a substitute for rubber due to its cost-effective processing by injection molding. It is soft and flexible, freely colorable, shows good elastic behavior up to 100°C and offers a pleasant feel. A wide range of modified compounds is available, e.g. adhesion-modified grades for 2K injection molding, printable grades, grades with optimized compression set, etc.
Typical areas of application
- Haptic components
- Household appliances
- Mechanical Engineering
- good haptics
- approved for food contact (EU and FDA)
Overview of product features
Due to the low water absorption, pre-drying can usually be dispensed with. Pre-drying can be useful to improve the surface quality.
Dryer type: Dry air dryer
Drying time: 3 – 4 h
Residual moisture: <0.02
Processing Injection molding:
Melt temperature: 230 – 250°C
Mold temperature: 20 – 50°C
Feed zone: 140 – 160°C
compression zone: 150 – 170°C
Discharge zone: 160 – 180°C

Higher temperatures may cause damage to the material.
General processing instructions:
The relatively high viscosity requires high injection speeds and medium injection pressure. To avoid high internal stresses and to improve the 2K adhesion, the holding pressure should be kept as low as possible and the holding times of injection pressure and holding pressure should be as short as possible.
Very good venting of the cavity is a basic prerequisite for achieving a high injection speed and, as a result, good adhesion and good surface quality.
The information in this data sheet is based on our current knowledge and experience. Due to the wide range of possible influences during processing and application of our products, they do not exempt the processor from carrying out his own tests and trials. A legally binding assurance of certain properties or suitability for a specific application cannot be derived from our information.
* FE products are development products which are still in the trial phase. Technical data may still change in the course of product and process development. No final decision has yet been made on the commercialization of FE products. We reserve the right to discontinue the manufacture of FE products without giving further reasons.
