KRAIBURG TPE offers a full range of TPE solutions for anti-slip mats
KRAIBURG TPE material solutions from KRAIBURG TPE® meet the requirements of automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the Asia-Pacific region and worldwide for high-performance materials and soft-touch surfaces for automotive interior applications.
Anti-slip mats are a necessary interior accessory designed to prevent items or accessories such as cell phones, glasses, keys, etc. from slipping off while driving. As TPE material is suitable for both functional and design element applications, in addition to the basic anti-slip function, the material also has characteristics such as a high-quality appearance surface and soft touch, which can add the finishing touch to the design of anti-slip mats.
Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) provide good grip, friction, durability, fire and chemical resistance, among other properties.
As a global manufacturer of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) materials and customized solutions, KRAIBURG TPE® offers a high quality range of TPE compounds for automotive interior applications.
