TPE for Consumer Goods
The SOFT EST.® TPE range has been created especially for consumer goods applications. It can be processed smoothly and efficiently by injection molding. This brand benefits from our long experience in manufacturing TPE granulates and developing TPE formulations suitable for highly regulated markets. The range encompasses 21 materials made from flexible TPE compounds. These include highly transparent, translucent and natural-colored versions with Shore hardness values from A20 to A85. The materials are all food-safe according to EU 10/2011 and FDA regulations. The products are suitable for applications involving direct contact with foods containing water, acids, alcohol and fats and also with dry foods; in all these situations the correct ratio must be maintained between the contact area and the total area.
PVC is still used in the vast majority of these devices, but there has been a concerted effort over the years to move away from this material because of perceived health concerns. TPEs are a safe bet, according to Actega, especially in this application.
ACTEGA DS GmbH was founded in 1920 under the name of Diersch & Schröder. The company specializes in the manufacture and development of soft elastic plastics in granulate form and sealing compounds for food closures and packaging, TPE materials for medical and pharmaceutical articles as well as for consumer goods.
ACTEGA DS develops, produces and markets specialized TPE materials for highly regulated markets such as the medical and pharmaceutical sector and the consumer goods industry. ACTEGA DS is a world leader in the manufacture of sealing components for plastic and metal closures in the food and drinks industries, supplying innovative, application-oriented TPE solutions. Since the company was founded, ACTEGA DS has been constantly presenting the latest technologies, which they develop and market hand in hand with their customers, manufacturers of closure machines and other decision-makers in the industry. When developing materials for sealing applications involving direct contact with foods, the company makes good use of its in-depth knowledge and expertise around thermoplastic elastomers. It has thus been able to develop for example SOFT EST.® TPE and PROVALIN® - innovative TPE materials and closure compounds with most minimal migration. The focus on TPEs for sensitive application areas and highly regulated markets was a major factor, enabling the company to become successfully established within the market and provide broad portfolio of materials for applications in the beverage and food industries, the consumer goods industry and medical technology. Whether TPE plastic granulates for toys, TPE seals, PVC plastisols for closures, thermoplastic elastomers for children's toys, household articles or TPE for kitchen applications or even medical technology articles, ACTEGA DS has the solution ready.
