Santopreneā„¢ thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) from the company is said to comply with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for food contact and bonds with engineering thermoplastics (ETPs). The new grade is said to be suitable for many types of applications that come into contact with food and liquids, including blenders and processing equipment; food storage containers; small kitchen appliances; and caps, seals and closures. TPV B100 is designed for adhesion to acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polycarbonate (PC), polystyrene (PS), acrylic (PMMA), acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and polyphenylene oxide (PPO)/PS blends using cold-insert, two-shot injection or extrusion molding. The TPV is said to provide greater design flexibility and help reduce the number of manufacturing steps. Because the product adheres directly to ETPs during processing, it is said to reduce the need for multiple-component assembly, improving product development cycle times and lowering system costs. Dishwasher and microwave safe, the FDA-compliant TPV is a soft, non-hygroscopic elastomer with a durable soft-touch feel, colorability, and processability. ExxonMobil Chemical, www.exxonchemical.com
