Soft Plastics from Plants: New Opportunities for Sustainable Products

  • Yana Petkova-Olsson
  • HEXPOL TPE

Dryflex Green is a family of biobased thermoplastic elastomers. They are opening up new possibilities to the bioplastics market by covering a wide range of properties, including softer grades from 20 Shore A, levels of renewable content to over 90% and chemical bonding to biobased polymers for 2K and multi-component applications.

They are being adopted for several applications previously using conventional TPEs, both as a drop-in substitution, without the need for mould or tool modification, and also for new developments. Applications include soft-touch grips and handles, tools, automotive, sports equipment and outdoor applications, as well as toys and baby products.
