Furthermore, lifestyles have gradually altered, necessitating the usage of cleaning devices that are simple to use, compact and lightweight, as well as energy efficient.

In order to match the theme and color palette of homes, device manufacturers guarantee that their items are visually appealing.

The development of advanced engineering materials like thermoplastic elastomers has enabled this transformation. 

KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a diverse range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom solutions for a variety of industries, provides the THERMOLAST® K series that is known for its outstanding surface quality, flowability, and durability for use in cleaning equipment applications.

In KRAIBURG TPE’s LW/CS/UV series, the compounds feature a low density of up to 0.7g/cm³. With lower weight and increased mobility of cleaning devices, innovation and development of the devices is made flexible.

Besides the significant weight saving, the compounds provide optimized compression set performance, with high temperature stability up to 100°C, making them ideal for seals for housings.

The additional characteristics, like non sticky surface, UV and weathering resistance, make the LW/CS/UV series of compounds a suitable fit for outdoor cleaning devices.

Furthermore, the LW/CS/UV series has good adhesion with PP. Processing of products using the TPE materials is made easy via injection molding and extrusion.

Other possible applications include grommets, window cleaners, pool robot brushes, blower and lawn mower handle or casings, etc.

AD/PA/CS series: Sealing performance

KRAIBURG TPE’s AD/PA/CS series adheres well to PA6 and PA6.6, with up to 50% glass fiber content, thus making it applicable for two-component injection molding and allowing for flexibility in production.

Furthermore, the compound series' superior sealing performance makes it suitable for use in the bottom sealing of swimming pool cleaning devices.

The compounds are available in natural color and can be colored in various colors and effects for functional and design aesthetics applications.

Other applications like water tank inlet seals, power switch buttons, water jet cleaning handles and tool handles are all feasible using the AD/PA/CS series of compounds.
