Teknor Apex Company's thermoplastic elastomer is specially
formulated for bumper extensions or "spoiler lips," which are injection molded
components that automotive manufacturers increasingly deploy to improve fuel
economy. Installed underneath bumpers or along both sides, the extensions not
only help lower the drag coefficient of the car and reduce wind noise during
travel but also protect the bumpers from damage encountered when the car is
parked near high pedestrian walkways or parking lot curbs. Sarlink K-156
elastomer provides the balance of stiffness and elasticity required to
withstand the punishment of scraping against these structures. The high
resistance exhibited by Sarlink K-156 upon prolonged exposure to water spray,
road salt, UV and temperatures is as low as -40C.
