Ticona unveils new UV-stabilized thermoplastic polyester elastomer

Ticona Engineering Polymers recently unveiled its new UV-stabilized Riteflex thermoplastic polyester elastomer (TPC-ET) for monofilamentsat Techtextil North America 2008. It represents an ultraviolet (UV) and weathering solution for office furniture, auto interior, and outdoor products that must stand up to the harsh abuse of light and weathering.

Ticona showcased Riteflex UV655M TPC-ET, part of a new family of UV stabilized Riteflex grades that Ticona engineered for specific applications, from interior automotive to animal tags to exterior films and fabrics.

Riteflex UV655M TPC-ET for monofilaments, multi-filaments and nonwovens provides in excess of 85 percent property retention for color and elongation at UV exposures of as much as 2000 kJ/m2, twice the industry standard, tested according to SAE J1960 in several colors including black.

As a result, product manufacturers can use these new monofilaments to create long-lasting fabrics for auto seating, outdoor furniture and other applications exposed to sunlight. In addition, Riteflex UV655M TPC-ET is available in a wide range of standard colors and custom color matching can be performed to match any specific color.

“Countless manufactured products can't stand up to UV and weathering abuse,” said Bruce Mulholland, the color technology manager for Ticona. “For example, today's suspension office chairs can discolor and rapidly lose some of their ductility in today's open, sun-drenched offices. Or injection molded hose fittings and cables corrode and crack when used outdoors. This new UV product can help overcome these issues.”
