Aurora Material Solutions offers environmentally friendly, polypropylene-based, zero halogen, flame-retardant extrusion grade compounds for packaging applications.


Aurora Material Solutions offers an environmentally friendly, polypropylene based, zero halogen, flame-retardant extrusion grade compound for packaging applications. In addition, our product line also includes flexible PVC, SBS and SEBS compounds. These include:

  • AuroraGuard™ compounds have strong antistatic properties and are primarily designed for packaging applications, specifically for industrial and consumer electronics markets. The compound is both RoHS and REACH compliant, has UL 94 VTM-0 OR UL 94 V-0 flame ratings, along with good low moisture absorption and chemical resistance. Additionally, AuroraGuard has anti-static properties of 10×1011 and can be scored and folded into 3D packages. This provides the user the ability to die-cut, store and ship their packages flat for easier on-site fabrication. There are hundreds of color options, and all of these compounds are offered in both molding and extrusion grades.
  • AuroraGuard TPOs (thermoplastic polyolefins) are multiphase compositions in which one phase consists of a material that is hard at room temperature and fluid when heated, and the other phase consists of an elastomeric material that is soft and rubberlike at room temperature. Aurora Material Solutions offers both halogenated and non-halogenated TPO based materials through its AuroraGuard product line.
  • AuroraGuard MABS (methacrylate-acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene), often known as clear ABS, can outperform polystyrene, SAN, and PMMA for impact resistance and has similar heat distortion properties. Polycarbonate can outperform clear ABS for both impact resistance and high-temperature properties as well. Clear ABS scores well for stress-crack resistance and processability, with good melt flow characteristics.
  • Our AuroraGuard PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) is an engineering polymer that is thermoplastic, semi-crystalline and a type of polyester. PBT provides excellent chemical resistance, shrinks very little during forming, is mechanically strong, heat-resistant up to 150°C (or 200°C with glass-fiber reinforcement), and can be treated with flame retardants to make it noncombustible. It is often used in automotive applications, including bumpers, tailgate outer panels and door handles.
  • AuroraFlex™ flexible PVC is a cost-effective alternative to our thermoplastic elastomers. These compounds 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 compound additives to promote plasticity and flexibility to meet specific needs, such as renewable non-phthalate, improved low temperature tolerance and biocides. When you’re looking for a compound that offers high-abrasion resistance and excellent processing properties, AuroraFlex SL is designed to produce longer-lasting materials, with no tearing.
  • 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.
  • AuroraTec™ exterior weatherable rigid PVC compounds  are available in powder or pellet form in various colors for application flexibility. Highly versatile, our AuroraTec™ interior rigid PVC compounds can be used as stand-alone compounds or as structural substrates, along with capstock, in two-part systems for applications that require high weatherability. However they’re used, these versatile compounds provide a wide processing window and excellent impact resistance. AuroraTec RPVC can be either clear or opaque. opaque PVC has additives, such as fillers and pigments to block transparency and impart a specific color. Clear rigid PVC is the same compound, just without the fillers and pigments.

Our R&D experts can work with you to develop a formulation that meets all your specific 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.
