Enflex - V® - TPV

Enflex-V® is our brand name for dynamically vulcanized ethylene/propylene/diene (EPDM) and Polypropylene (PP) blends. Fully cured EPDM particles that are homogenously distributed in the thermoplastic polypropylene phase give these compounds unique rubber-like properties, with the advantage of thermoplastic processing techniques. Enflex-V® range can be self-colored with the use of proper MB or provided as pre-colored compounds. Typical properties of Enflex-V® series are given below.

 General Properties:
* Hardness range from 45 Shore A to 60 Shore D
* Service Temperature: -50°C - +125°C (dynamic) -50- + 135°C (Static/Peak)
* Excellent ozone, UV and weather resistance due to saturated elastomeric phase
* Chemical resistance to aggressive mediums
* Very Low (Rubberlike) compression set and good elasticity (that does not change
significantly over time) in a wide temperature range.

Special Enflex-V® series have following properties:

* Adhesion to a broad range of polar and non-polar substrates such as PP, PA, ABS, PC
* Broad product range including Halogen Free FR, improved oil resistance, improved temperature resistance, high flow and other specialty grades.
* Recyclability and lower processing costs with respect to traditional cured rubbers
* Lower density
* Very good resistance to “fatigue” and tear strength  
* Low fogging
* Flammability (UL 94 V0)
* CSTB, RAL GZ-716/1 approvals
