GENERAL PURPOSE ECONOMIC GRADE
EMPILON® 3 series compound is the entry level of EMPILON® material, which has a limited Tensile Strength property. EMPILON® 3 series can be adapted to many fields of use, such as: hand grips, household goods, sporting goods, stationary, toys etc. Styrenic Block Copolymer is the main content of this 3 series compound, its hardness range is from Shore A 28 ~ Shore 85. They can be processed by way of ordinary plastic machinery for Injection, extrusion or calendaring etc.
EMPILON® 3 series compound are non-toxic and free of Pb, Cd, Hg, Cr6+, Sb, As, Ba, Se, halogen and DOP plasticizer, they also comply with the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substance directive in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS 2002/95/EC) and SONY SS-00259 that prohibit products that contain Pb.Cd.Hg.Cr6+.PBB.PBDE etc. They are 100% recycable and comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive (WEEE 2002/95/EC).
EMPILON® 3 series compound retain good mechanical properties after solvent resistance testing and do not hydrolyze in water. They need 80℃~90℃ dehumidified hot air at least 2 hours before any molding process and need to be continually dried during operation. For coloring, please select color master batch based on PE or EVA material except for PVC. Higher screw speed and backpressure are needed for better colorant dispersion.
