Pebax®

 

LIGHT WEIGHT

Pebax® materials have a very low density that accommodates the design of lighter parts. Pebax® materials are ideal for outsoles, offering resilience to repeated stress, along with resistance to distortion and deformation.

FLEXIBILITY

Maximum strength where you need support, flexibility where you need movement. Pebax® grades can be combined within a single component to provide rigidity at one end, flexibility at the other. Controlled flexibility governs the movement of the shoe and, with each stride, returns it to its original shape.

SHOCK ABSORPTION

Shock absorption in sport equipment improves control and increases enjoyment. Pebax® materials can absorb the shocks and vibrations normally experienced in sports activities (e.g. tennis rackets).

SUSTAINED PERFORMANCE AT COLD TEMPERATURES 

Unlike toes and fingers, Pebax® materials do not stiffen in cold weather. Snow shoe soles made with Pebax® polymers retain their mechanical properties (strength and impact resistance) and resilience under freezing conditions (-40°C).

STRENGTH

Pebax® polymers are ideal materials for high performance athletic shoes and equipment. Exceptional compression and fatigue resistance make Pebax® the best choice for outsoles where high strength and support are needed at low density. Pebax® can be injected into very thin parts.

EASY PROCESSING

Pebax® materials are polyether block amides (thermoplastic elastomers family) and plasticizer-free. They are easy to process by injection molding as well as profile or film extrusion. They can be injected into very thin parts.
