Wire Coating

Aurora Plastics offers flexible PVC options for a variety of wire coating applications.

Unlike rigid PVC, our AuroraFlex™ SBS and SEBS compounds utilize multiple TPE/TPR chemistries to impart high-performance properties for durability and easy processing. TPE options are available as low as 10A* up to 50D durometer hardness. Some of our TPEs are offered in clear, as well as oil free grades.

Our team will also work with you to complete the formulation, with fillers in order to offer more specific properties, like reduced shrinkage, increased weight, pigment and lubrication.

* NOTE: 

Durometer

 hardness is measured with a calibrated 

durometer

 using the Shore Type-A scale in a room of consistent temperature. The indenter is inserted for 15 seconds to determine if it passes the ASTM D2240-

Durometer 

Hardness test for the desired 

durometer
