TPE-Technologie für direkt angespritzte Eckverbindungen und Endstücke an EPDM Profilen

Adhesion of TPE to EPDM

Die Automobilindustrie ist der größte und am stärksten wachsende Markt für Thermoplastische Elastomere (TPE). Zu den neuesten Entwicklungen zählen unter anderem neue TPE-Compounds mit Haftung zu Ethylen-Propylen-Dien-Kautschuk (EPDM). Sie lassen sich im Spritzguss in vergleichsweise kurzen Zykluszeiten verarbeiten. Die Verarbeitung erfolgt bei im Vergleich zu Kautschuk geringen Temperaturen, was zudem die Kühlzeit verkürzt. Die TPEs sind UV- wie witterungsbeständig und zeigen ein geringes Foggingverhalten. more...

Rigid flexible Componds in lightweight

Peel Test for practical Application – Determination of the bond strength of Two Component Rigid Flexible Composites

Rigid Flexible Composites are used as important components in lightweight constructions in many cases. The application of these composites is limited by the bond strength, i. e. the adhesion between the components. A new method to determine the bond strength as a material parameter is proposed. Metal Plastic Hybrids are studied with the Peel Test […] more...
