Elasto: To Begin TPE Production in China

Elasto have announced plans to begin production of their Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) compounds in China. Elasto was acquired by Hexpol AB, a leading polymer group in April 2010 and currently operates from two European based manufacturing sites in Amal Sweden and Manchester UK.

The new China operation will initially focus on Elasto’s Dryflex range of TPE compounds based on SBS, SEBS and EPDM technologies and is expected to come on stream in the second half of 2012. The new production facility will operate from Hexpol’s existing Foshan site in the expansive Guangzhou area, a key location for polymer component manufacturing.

The investment covers plans for high-quality twin screw technology and supporting sub systems. Elasto will replicate the advanced compounding processes they operate at their European sites, encompassing automated technology and feeders alongside extensive laboratory facilities. With an emphasis on the highest quality products and support, Elasto will be positioned to deliver custom-formulated TPE compounds to their customers in Asia in the shortest time possible.
