A Unique Combination of Flexibility, High Temperature Resistance and Strength
Arnitel® is a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) with high temperature resistance, good processability and excellent elastic behavior. Arnitel belongs to the TPE subcategory of thermoplastic copolyesters (TPC).
Arnitel® is increasingly being used as a lighter, smarter, greener alternative to conventional rubbers, reducing environmental impact and ultimately system costs. Thanks to its outstanding characteristics, Arnitel® offers exceptional flexibility in design—giving the freedom to implement the most innovative product concepts, and to add value to the design process. Therefore, helping meet demands for ever-higher end-product performance and cost-effectiveness.
Arnitel® has a wide range of hardnesses, which can replace rubbers, metals, leather, and other thermoplastics. Arnitel® delivers superior chemical, heat, and wear resistance, along with the ability to be recycled.
We offer Arnitel® across a full portfolio of grades, each designed to meet specific customer needs. That includes grades suitable for injection molding, blow molding and extrusion – as well as Arnitel Eco, a bio-based thermoplastic copolyester (TPE).
