ACTEGA Coatings & Sealants

Customized development of TPE Materials

The SOFT EST.® TPE portfolio provides a wide range of functions, lending end products a quality appearance, creating a high degree of attention within the market, offering many interesting possibilities for consumer goods and representing the right material solution for a wide variety of applications.

Whether high-tech oral products – in the form of toothbrushes – or perfectly fitting diving goggles, a luxury appearance attributed by refined cosmetics packaging or a pet's favorite toy, a chopping board resistant to discoloring or a reusable coffee-to-go cup – plastic materials can be found today in practically all areas of life. This website lists a range of market segments with examples for which SOFT EST.® offers a suitable solution. But even if certain segments or applications cannot be found here, when it comes to functions which have not been thematized to date or a product idea which has not yet been realized, it does not mean that realization thereof is not possible.

Specialization in tailormade TPE for the perfect fit

ACTEGA DS specializes in customized developments offering manifold functional possibilities. Flexibility and creating customized solutions are core competencies. A large development team of experienced plastics technicians is available to work on developing new, innovative products from the very first requirement profile stated by the customer through to the marketable product.

Optimization of processing properties in in-house technical center  

First of all, any possible raw materials are analyzed in detail and compounded to differing material buildups with various raw materials. These material approaches are then examined in terms of their various properties and those required by the customer. Thanks to an extensive machine park in our own in-house technical center and the corresponding application technology, test rods and specimens can be manufactured on injection-molding machines once satisfactory material compositions have been found, thereby testing the processing properties of the compounds. This enables new development products to be tested and parameterized in advance while accelerating and optimizing the individual development steps. Then it can be ascertained on site whether the developed materials display good processing properties and meet customer requirements.

Tailored solutions which are perfectly aligned to the respective application and target group in terms of technology, function and design do not pose a problem for ACTEGA DS, whereby a variety of visual, haptic and shape options is available.
