Teknor Apex was founded in 1924 and offers unmatched expertise in polymer science, plastics processing and application development support. We partner with designers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and processors to develop customized plastics solutions across industries including consumer products, medical, electronics, and transportation. Although headquartered in Pawtucket, RI, Teknor Apex has global reach, operating more than a dozen manufacturing facilities in the United States, Belgium, Germany, Singapore, and China.
When it comes to utilizing plastics in new products, we’ve identified a gap between product design and manufacturing feasibility. We like to get involved early in the product development process in order to ensure the most efficient design for the lowest total cost.
Thermoplastic Elastomers, or TPEs, are the premier choice of soft, flexible materials due to their robust properties, cost effectiveness, and design flexibility. As a global leader in compounding, Teknor Apex offers the broadest portfolio of TPE technologies in the industry, including styrenic block copolymer (SBC) compounds, polyolefin blends (TPE-O or TPO), thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPE-Vs or TPVs), polyurethane compounds (TPE-U or TPU), and other specialty blends.
Monprene® TPEs for Consumer Products
