Robert Diehl

Foster Corporation, a leading supplier of polymer solutions for the healthcare industry, introduces ProFlex styrene-ethylene butylene-styrene (SEBS) for medical device applications.  These polymers offer a low cost alternative to other thermoplastic elastomers with superior elastomeric properties.

Styrene block copolymers (SBC’s), including SEBS, offer the greatest value among all thermoplastic elastomers. SBC’s provide design flexibility and resilience properties similar to thermoset rubber, wwhile maintaining desirable processing characteristics of thermoplastics. ProFlex SEBS is suitable for use in conventional injection molding and extrusion equipment.
