Pebax®

Product range
 Pebax® products bring you the best compromise of characteristics: versatile processing, lightness, flexibility, physical and chemical properties.

Pebax® thermoplastic elastomers consist of polyamide and polyether backbone blocks. These specialty elastomers offer very low material density, extremely efficient energy return (over a wide temperature range) and are optionally biobased. They are offered in a wide range of shore hardness values. Certain Pebax(R) grades are also inherently antistatic and hydrophilic in nature.

Sports Equipment

Over the years, Pebax® TPE has become known as one of the highest performance materials offered to the sports market. Biomechanical performance and durability of high-end sporting equipment like running shoes, cleats, and ski boots are just a few examples of where Pebax® TPE can Stretch the Limits of athletes.  Key benefits to the sport market include: lightness, energy return, enduring elasticity, shock resistance, toughness, and flexibility.

Medical

Pebax® MED elastomers are ideal for medical device design, helping surgeons with durable, tubing & catheters and lightweight breathable surgical gowns.

The Pebax® TPE MED range offers a wide selection of rigid, semi-rigid, and flexible grades that are all plasticizer, BPA, and PVC-free.  Common medical applications for Pebax® resins include catheters, PVC-free tubing, and breathable films for medical gowns and wound care.

Industrial Applications

Because the Pebax® TPE range is so versatile, it can be utilized in a wide array of applications.  Some include breathable films (e.g. monolithic housewrap), active molecule carriers (e.g. air fresheners), antistatic additives (e.g. electronics packaging), coloration, welding and decoration, polyamide additives (e.g. cold impact modifier), and power transmission for its flex fatigue resistance.
