Sarlink® Think Performance and Value
Though Sarlink® products exhibit rubber-like properties, they offer processors the design freedom of thermoplastics, in addition to improved productivity and recyclability. Compared to other widely used TPEs, Sarlink® TPVs provide greater elasticity, resistance to flexural fatigue, stability at high temperatures, chemical resistance and good weatherability. These features make Sarlink® an ideal choice for replacing thermoset rubber in many automotive and industrial applications.
