Teknor Apex Distributor

TEKNOR APEX

Teknor Apex Company is one of the world’s leading custom compounders of plastics. Teknor Apex produces flexible and rigid vinyl, thermoplastic elastomers, nylons, color masterbatches, specialty chemicals and hoses.

Teknor Apex offers one of the broadest portfolios of TPE technologies in the industry, including styrenic block copolymer (SBC) compounds, polyolefin blends (SBC or TPE-S), thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPE-Vs or TPVs), polyurethane compounds (TPE-U or TPU), and other specialty blends.

By taking a more focused approach to meet each market's needs, Teknor Apex’s TPE product lines are aligned with the industries they serve. Standard grades meet the necessary regulations and specifications for that industry, enabling customers to use compounds that pre-qualify for applications, and accelerating our customers' speed to market with new products.

Press Release: Nexeo Plastics signs expanded agreement with Teknor Apex to distribute its TPEs throughout North America.

We are accepting orders for Teknor’s TPE products beginning Jan. 1, 2023.
