Published on 2021-04-27. Author : SpecialChem

xenia-composites-sports-applications Xenia® Materials introduces the new ultra-light composites family entirely developed on Pebax® thermoplastic elastomer, reference polymer in several flagship sports applications.

Exceptional Properties and Features

Due to their exceptional density value, which is below 0.90 g/cm3, XELIGHT™ grades stand out for their incredible lightness. At the same time, they feature a great impact strength, especially at low temperatures, great flexibility and high energy return, still maintaining the peculiarities of the base polymer.

The XELIGHT™ grades combine a good hydrolytic resistance and dimensional stability to a great processability and thermal resistance, furthermore, they are all colorable and available in biocompatible grades.

These new lightweight thermoplastic composites are the perfect solutions for many applications in the footwear world, especially where exceptional lightness, low density and great flexibility are required, always maintaining their excellent impact strength value.
