TPE-food-contact Avient Corporation exhibits its extensive portfolio of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) formulations for kitchenware and houseware applications at Shanghai International Catering Equipment and Kitchenware Exhibitions 2020 (Cekexpo 2020).

TPEs Compliant with Diverse Global Regulations

Avient’s exhibit is focused on specialty TPE materials that are compliant with diverse global regulations and performance requirements. These advanced materials can help OEMs and processors to meet materials safety standards and reinforce sustainability goals for kitchenware and houseware products.

“Product designers in the kitchenware and houseware industry are looking for materials that can meet the increasing demand for food safety and compliance, while also seeking more sustainable content,” said Flight Xu, general manager of specialty engineered materials Asia for Avient, “Our innovative TPEs can meet the regulatory challenges, including FDA, EU10/2011 and China GB standard, and enhance safety without compromising performance or design freedom. We also have a range of TPEs under our reSound brand that contain up to 50 percent bio-based content.”

Featured solutions in the booth include:
  • Soft Touch TPEs: They add soft touch grip and enhance aesthetics for kitchenware products. These materials have good weather resistance, enhanced flexibility and good sealing performance, and include FDA-compliant and medical grades.
  • reSound™ Bio-based TPEs: They contain significant (40 to 50 percent) bio-based content within a wide hardness range; performance characteristics are comparable to standard TPEs.
  • Dynalloy™ Food Contact TPEs: These are designed to help manufacturers comply with China’s GB 4806.6-2016 and GB 9685-2016 regulations in the Chinese market space.
  • Overmolded TPEs: These can be injection overmolded directly onto a substrate including PP, PC/ABS, Tritan, COPE, and others without bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates, or heavy metals. It eliminates the need for many secondary operations.
