Origin of FULXUS®

Amalgamation of art and society

It contains the idea that all human actions and behavior are art irrespective of whether it is labor or something else and all humans are artists. Besides, at the contact point that joins art activities (can also be called production activities) and society, conversation between the person himself and other persons (society) takes place. In other words, in the production shop floor that may appear complex yet monotonous, we wanted to give some kind of narrative and loftiness to the actions and process of making goods.

FULXUS® - Styrene elastomer

Features of styrene grade

Application

Golf grip / office equipment / shaving grip / toothbrush grip / packing / automobile parts etc.

Outline and Features

Soft grade having simple composition made of SEBS, PP and plasticizer. It can be used for various applications including items with hardness A10 through 90 and more. Its salient features are, it has excellent rubber elasticity and expansive force, and it has outstanding cold resistance, heat deterioration resistance, and weather resistance. Because it is colorless, any color can be applied. It is most suitable for camouflage and it is light weight compared to vulcanized rubber.

Free design, Customize, Cost

  • Texture is designed as per the customers' requirements.
  • Final compounding with functionality(including Coloring) was achieved.
  • Cost competitiveness with integrated sales, technology, and production.

Lineup of styrene grade

FX-K
Series

Use of super-high-molecular SEBS polymer gives stronger mechanical properties than the standard grade, and it has excellent tensile strength and stretch.

FX-V
Series

In this grade, we have used our indigenous composition and we have given a special focus to the feeling when touched with hands. Its physical properties are more or less same as the standard grade. However, this compound has smooth feeling not found in the conventional styrene elastomer.

FX-G
Series

This is specialized grade with excellent grip and it is positioned in the extreme opposite of FX-V series. It has stickiness and it is suitable for anti-slip etc.

Lineup of styrene specialized grade
Olefin Elastomer

FX-BON
Series

This is specialized grade with focus on adhesiveness with resins. It has high adhesiveness due to composition suitable for PP, PS, ABS, and the like.

FX-SB
Series

By changing the base resin from SEBS to SBS, low cost products can be manufactured. However, it has low weather resistance, and therefore it is not suitable for outdoor use.

FX-TA
Series

This is a special grade for adhesiveness with tape. Styrene elastomers have poor adhesiveness with tape, and FX-TA series offers better adhesiveness with tape.

Application of styrene grade

Golf grip

- High grip function
- Specific gravity adjustment of several types with respect to the same grade
- Specific gravity management with the accuracy of ±0.005

Shaving grip

- Adhesiveness with ABS
- Blue color chromogenic effect
- Excellent formability

Toothbrush grip

- Adhesiveness with PP
- Smooth touch feeling, transparency of design
- Manufacturing stability in the production line

FULXUS® - Olefin elastomer

Features of olefin grade

Application

Cutter grip / office chair

Outline and Features

We offer products with excellent design properties having matte finish and smooth texture like silk that gives luxurious feeling. It has same level of rubber elasticity as general rubber products, and it can be molded with the same processing method as thermoplastic resin. It can be blended with TPO series and olefin resin, and products from rubber like properties to resin like properties can be obtained. Besides, it can also be recycled.

Development of specialized products focused on visual appeal and touch feeling

  • Texture and mat finish as per the customers' requirements
  • Design keeping in mind the luxurious interior feel for using as the interior material of automobiles
  • In addition to meeting cost requirements, we can handle various requirements of customers
  • Derived based on indigenous composition and kneading method

TPO(ThermoPlasticOlefin)
Styrene Elastomer

Outline

In this olefin elastomer, we have finely dispersed EPDM in PP and we have done dynamic cross-linking with organic peroxide. EPDM is either partially or completely cross-linked.

Features

  • Because of low density, weight of the products can be reduced (0.88-0.89)
  • Excellent weather resistance and chemical resistance
  • It has excellent heat resistance, and it has excellent extrusion and intrusion formability
  • It is highly recyclable, and there is very little decline in properties even if it is reused

Lineup of olefin grade
Olefin Elastomer

FX-TPO-J
Series

[Partial cross-linked type] Olefin based standard grade. In this type, degree of cross-linking as well as the balance between workability and heat resistance is also adjusted

FX-TPV
Series

[Complete cross-linked type] In this grade, rubber like properties are strengthened with completely cross-linked EPDM. While it has better mechanical strength than FX-TPO-J series, it has lower percentage of elongation.
