GLS offers designers, molders and marketers of personal care products a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), the soft touch overmold material Versaflex® OM 9-802CL.
This TPE is different due to its clarity and soft touch feel with the ability to provide adhesion to PC, ABS, PC/ABS, and COPE. With a Shore A hardness of 40, the TPE is designed for easy processing and colorability. It requires no drying and the clarity allows for vibrant colors. High match color consistency can be assured by ordering precolored compounds from the company. Otherwise, typical loading from 1 percent to 5 percent of color concentrates is recommended.
