Applications

Soft Touch Interior Parts

Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds based on Kraton HSBC are extensively used in automotive interiors because of its soft touch feel and exceptional color matching performance. Applications include console mats, cup holder liners, overmolded knobs, grips and bezels. These compounds can also be formulated to be overmolded onto different substrates, minimizing additional assembly steps.
