RadiciGroup has strengthened its plastics production capability by adding a new manufacturing unit, Radici Elastomeri Srl, a company located in Provaglio d'Iseo (BS), Italy. In operation since 2008, the new company manufactures thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) marketed under the brandname Heraflex and polyethylene compounds under the brand name Radilene.

Radici Elastomeri Srl RadiciGroup SEBS, SBS and elastomeric polyolefin (PE – PP) TPEs are used for applications in the automotive, sports, household and construction sectors.

The complete product range includes Heraflex A – SEBS compounds with low odour emission and good light stability for automotive applications, houseware, tool handles and seals –, Heraflex B – SBS compounds with high mechanical performance and resistance to high temperatures for technical applications not exposed to weather conditions –, Heraflex P – elastomeric polyolefins, ideal for applications in the sportswear (ski boots, skates and other winter footwear), furnishings and automotive sectors –, and Heraflex E – TPE-C thermoplastic elastomer copolyester.

RadiciGroup's Radilene polyethylene compounds include four types of products used for applications in the construction sector (conduit, plumbing pipe, steel pipe coating and waste pipe) and artificial grass sector (synthetic turf infill): Radilene R 30, low-density polyethylene compounds (LDPEs), Radilene R 31, linear low-density polyethylene compounds (LLDPEs), Radilene R 70, high-density polyethylene compounds (HDPEs) and, lastly, Radilene R 71, medium-density polyethylene compounds (MDPEs).

Heraflex and Radilene performance characteristics can meet the requirements of the most diverse sectors – industrial, automotive, furnishings, sports, synthetic turf, and electric/electronic – that require reliable and safe products of high quality.

RadiciGroup has operated in the thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) field in Germany since the early 1990s producing styrene-based elastomers for automotive use. With the new productions site in Provaglio d'Iseo, Italy, the Group is now in a position to broaden its existing portfolios of Heraflex and Radilene R plastics.
