Raplan

RAPLAN are SBS (Styrene-Butylene-Styrene) elastomer-based thermoplastic compounds (TPE-S or TPS).
The elastomer phase gives the compound its elastic property and the softness characteristic of rubber.
It is an ideal substitute for PVC when products free from halogens are required.
The unsaturated structure of SBS means the compound is sensitive to heat and UV. The use of specific additives improves this feature.
Ideal for overmoulding on polystyrene.
