Transparent crystal clear, plasticizer-free

Transparent crystal clear, plasticizer-free

Chemiton Clear® transparent “crystal clear” is a 100% oil and plasticizer-free, high transparency compound.

With its glossy surface finishing, it is considerably scratch proof and has an optimal resistance to atmospheric conditions (UV and ozone).
Various sterilising methods including autoclave are possible.

Chemiton crystal clear is suitable for applications requiring high mechanical and scratch resistance as well as ageing stability like sport items (diving goggles, laces and bands for sport equipment) design and fashion items, watchstraps, toys and medical devices.

Technically it is a TPE composed of saturated styrenic block-copolymers based on SEPS, which complies with the regulations for food contact. It is suitable for both injection moulding and extrusion. It is highly compatible with thermoplastic polyolefins and therefore suitable for co-injection and co-extrusion, if needed for the production of multicomponent items.
