Is it possible to detect which kind of TPE we hold in our hands without a TDS or lab analysis?
In this investigation our senses are our best ally.
The first sense we can rely on is the touch: it can help us feel a velvet or silky surface rather than a slippery or rubbery one.
In the right hands these information turn into actual elastomers and additives with given features and properties. The keys to the success of this process are knowledge and practice.
Our skin is the ultimate border between our selves and everything surrounding us. Anything getting in contact with our skin could possibly have a great impact on us, that’s why biocompatibility became a top issue. Let’s think for example to the increasing attention drawn on the comfort required for IOT devices like smartwatches.
MARFRAN.MED® TPE are perfect for medical devices, pharmaceutical packaging and other devices that could get in touch with the skin making them comfortable and enjoyable to wear.
