Rigid & Flexible PVC compounds for US military grade plastics

U.S. MilitaryITAR Registered

From protective gear to footwear to equipment covers to vehicle and electronic components and more, Aurora Material Solutions provides a wide range of innovative compounds for military applications. Our TPU composites, PEI, PC/PET alloys and PC/PBT alloys deliver the critical features of being durable, tough and lightweight in military applications. We are also ITAR Compliant.

AuroraTec™ compounds Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) Composite is a versatile material with a wide range of military applications, such as in protective gear for soldiers with its excellent impact resistance and flexibility to move, and in-vehicle components like fuel tanks, hoses and seals with its excellent resistance to fuels, oils and other chemicals. The AuroraTec line also includes polycarbonate/polyethylene terephthalate (PC/PET) that offers excellent mechanical, thermal and chemical properties, making it suitable for a wide range of military applications. They are also known for their durability and resistance to chemical, weather and UV exposure, making them suitable for harsh and demanding military environments.

AuroraGuard Polyetherimide (PEI) offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent dimensional stability and resistance to high temperatures and chemicals, making it ideal for aerospace and electronic components where reliability and performance are critical. PEI can also be used in the manufacture of medical equipment, protective gear and vehicle components.

For applications requiring flexible compounds, we offer AuroraFlex™ compounds. Unlike rigid PVC, 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.

These materials are similar to vulcanized rubber, but can be molded and extruded using conventional thermoplastic process equipment. This offers benefits over vulcanized, thermoset rubbers, which are processed using a slower and more costly curing process. The majority of our TPR formulations are 100% recyclable and are RoHS compliant.*

Our R&D experts will help you develop the formulation that meets your specific application requirements.

* 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.
