EMPILON® HAR series compound are specially designed for over-molding with engineering plastic such as ABS, PC, Nylon, PETG, PBT etc. which are commonly use in the 3C industry (Computer, Communication and Consumer electronics) as well as hand held device products for soft touch, anti-slip & vibration functional purposes. Hydrogenated Styrenic Block Copolymer is the main content of this HAR series compound, its hardness range is from Shore A 39 ~ Shore 85. They can be processed by double injection and co-extrusion machines or ordinary plastic injection machines with an insert molding process.
EMPILON® HAR series compound are non-toxic and free of Pb, Cd, Hg, Cr6+, Sb, As, Ba, Se, Halogen and Phthalate ester, 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 and PBDE etc. They are 100% recyclable and comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive (WEEE2002/95/EC).
EMPILON® HAR series compound retain good mechanical properties after heating, weathering and solvent resistance testing and won’t hydrolyze in water. They need 80℃ ~ 90℃ dehumidified hot air at least 2 hours before any molding process and need to be continually dried operation. The HAR series are opaque or transparent type in nature. For coloring, please select color master batch based on PE or EVA. Do not use PVC based material. Higher screw speed and backpressure are required for better colorant dispersion.
