AURORA PLASTICS APPLICATIONS

Footwear

With a variety of high-performance compounds for footwear applications, Aurora Plastics is a valued partner to the footewear industry. Our innovative flexible PVC, SBS and SEBS compounds are used for soling, mid-soling, boots and many other applications.

AuroraPrene™ SBS and SEBS compounds utilize multiple TPE chemistries to impart high performance properties for durability and easy processing. There are hundreds of color options, and all of these compounds are offered in both molding and extrusion grades.

Unlike rigid PVC, AuroraFlex™ flexible PVC introduces a plasticizer into the formulation to give properties that are required for non-rigid applications. Aurora Plastics can provide flexible PVC from 35A to 95A Shore A Durometer* to semi-rigid, with specific gravities ranging from 1.15 to 1.65. We use various types of plasticizers to meet specific needs, such as renewable non-phthalate, improved low temperature tolerance and biocides.

Our team will also work with you to complete the formulation, making sure to find fillers that meet your specific application needs.

* 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.
